Note that the unicode 7 changes also need to be considered, because
python 3.4 used unicode 6.3.

There are some changes to the recommendations on what to use in
identifiers.  Python doesn't follow precisely the previous rules,
but it would be good to ensure that any newly allowed characters
are intentional -- particularly for the newly defined characters.

My gut feel is that it would have been fine during beta, but for 
the 3rd RC I am not so sure.
