Raymond Hettinger added the comment:

In Python 3.5 and Python 3.6, this is already fixed (decoupled from PYTHONHASHSEED).  In Python 2.7, I could backport the fix, add a note to the docs, or just let it be (since seeding is turned off by default).  The other versions of Python are already inactive.
