the build of the documentation fails with at least the 3.5.4rc1.  It adds a new
build dependency (blurb), which is inconvenient to build on stable environments,
or when pip is not available. Please could you consider including the blurb
module itself in python for the stable branches?

The build of the docs then fails with:

make -C Doc html
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/packages/python/3.5/python3.5-3.5.4~rc1/Doc'
mkdir -p build
PYTHONPATH=/home/packages/python/3.5/python3.5-3.5.4~rc1/debian/blurb python3 -m
blurb merge -f build/NEWS
