I don't know if folks deploying on embedded platforms are using these
options (directly or indirectly), but expect that's the primary

Hopefully somebody who's doing that can tell us if they're using the
defines, and what versions of Python they're currently using.  Then we
can determine whether the should be supported.

If they should be, there should be buildbot's set up for relevant
configurations.  Otherwise removal is best.
