Recent releases of ucrt implement this translation from underscore to hyphen for us, so this suggestion is no longer always necessary. However, I don't know what the PEP-11 stance is regarding the modern lifecycle policy of Windows 10. Will Python support a release for as long as it's supported by the enterprise version? For example, support for 1709 enterprise ends on 2020-04-14, so if we followed that, then Python 3.9 would require Windows 10 1803 or higher. That seems wrong while we're still supporting Windows 8.1, but what will the stance be when Python supports only Windows versions that use the modern lifecycle?
