Haste makes waste ;) I'd rather put off the move to OpenBlas to 1.14 to
allow more time for it to settle, and compiling against Python 3.6.0 seems
like more work than it is worth, It should be easy to upgrade to 3.6.1 for
those affected once they are aware of the problem, and it should not be too
long before Python 3.6.2 is out. I'll call it the Scipy2017 release.
