If no issue number is mentioned in the commit message, then chances
are there's no specific issue in the tracker related to that particular
commit.  Normally there will be an issue, but sometimes things are done
without one (a practice we should maybe think about changing).

Most likely the commit's author, Victor Stinner, will see your message
or this one and respond.  That particular change recently came up (by
implication) in another context (unicode singletons...)
