I also think it's more sensible to target 2.7.9 & 3.4.3 for this
change, especially given the remaining rough edges in custom trust
database configuration on WIndows and Mac OS X that Christian pointed
out in http://bugs.python.org/issue22449

I don't believe Benjamin has picked a specific date for 2.7.9 yet, but
the regular maintenance release cadence (ignoring security releases)
would put it some time in November, which should be sufficient time to
get the remaining issues ironed out for 3.5 under the normal
development process, and then included under the banner of PEP 476 for
backporting to the maintenance branches.
