Once the code exists (regardless of the exact spelling), it also becomes
much easier to extract as an extension module on PyPI for wire protocol
formatting. That would allow folks to choose between just supporting 3.5+
and using the builtin formatting operations, or switching to the cross
version compatible formatting module (if one was created).

So I like the idea of restoring this capability for 3.5, but don't see a
reason to consider rushing it into 3.4.

Cheers,
Nick.
