You make a good point.

I have changed the classifier Python3 to Python3.1, 3.2, and 3.3 -- hopefully that will things a little easier.

The request came from someone who would like to have one wheel file for all Python2-3 versions; I know that in setup.py it's easy enough to check the version and add (or not) enum34 to the required 
(or dependent?) module list.  Does this type of thing work with wheels?
