Personally I am fine with Python 3.8 dropping Windows 7 support entirely if this makes it work better in Windows 8+. However, the 3 month overlap here would set a precedent that we don't have to adhere to self-imposed timing restrictions which is dangerous territory.

I think it's reasonable to leave Windows 7 support but *require* KB2533625 to be in. We've done similar things before on other platforms.
