I had some time today, so I took a crack at merging this into Python 3.8. I've filed GH-25274 with my proposal.

To summarize, I'm suggesting back porting all changes from bpo-41100 (as well as the subsequent bpo-42688) but without the weak-linking changes to `posixmodule` and co, the installer changes and the `universal2` variant. This means we don't support `arm64` officially, but someone can build for it from source if they'd like.

This should unblock Homebrew (which currently manually patches based on some obsolete PRs) as well as folks who build from source and have a particular need (as we would for example at Dropbox).
