I'd be curious if there is any public record on this removal. I'm
not sure it actually happened; socketmodule.c still has

#if defined(__digital__) && defined(__unix__)

and configure.in still has two mentionings of Tru64. Also,
cmathmodule.c still has support code for Tru64. So if support
was removed at all, this wasn't done very carefully.

I'm fine with declaring that the removal was *announced* in 3.0,
though, and actually performed in 3.4 (assuming this then actually
happens, contributions are welcome).
