[Python-Dev] Python 3.4: What to do about the Derby patches

The PEP 436 is still a draft and not mentionned in Python 3.4
changelog. The PEP proposes to add a DSL, not to modify all modules
implemented in C. I think that it should be marked as Final and
mentionned in the changelog.

Where is the issue to implement this feature? Anyway, I expect a huge
patch which is non-trivial and so very risky for such a very important
module :-/ It's too late IMO.
