Responding today, I cautioned that clean-up only patches, such as she apparently would like to start with, are not in favor.
I would not say that. I recall that I asked Gregor to make a number of style changes before he submitted the code, and eventually agreed to the code when I thought it was "good enough". However, continuing on that path sounds reasonable to me.
I am not sure what you mean by 'that path', to be continued on.
The path of improving the coding style of the turtle module.
I'd suggest that it is less work to restrict cleanup to 3.5, and then deal with any forward-porting of bug fixing when it actually happens.
This would make it non-trivial for any patch hitting a difference.
Indeed. OTOH, it's simpler for anybody doing the code cleanup to do it only on one branch.
