Thanks. Some updates on specific things either already accepted, or
under consideration for inclusion:

Already implemented:

   PEP 465 (matrix multiplication operator):
   Standard streams default to the "surrogateescape" error handler if
ASCII is reported as the IO encoding (improves tolerance of the POSIX
C locale)

Already accepted:

    PEP 461 (binary printf-style formatting):
    PEP 471 (os.scandir): http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0471/

Under consideration (in addition to the items already listed in the PEP):

    PEP 432 (simplifying the startup sequence)
    PEP 475 (retry system calls failing with EINTR)
    Improved Windows console Unicode support (see
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/win_unicode_console for details)
    Changing the encoding and error handling of an existing stream

(432 was previously listed as deferred, but it went back on my todo
list once 3.4 was out the door)
