> The change is backwards incompatible and a backport would break things. See for example how it breaks latexcodec:

I reopen the issue. I proposed PR 17997 to *document* the incompatible change in What's New in Python 3.8. IMO it's a deliberate change and it's correct.

I rely on Marc-Andre Lemburg who implemented codecs and encodings modules. He wrote: "Jordon is right. Conversion has to be to underscores, not hyphens.".
