Matthias and I talked briefly about this at Pycon.  We want to get 3.5.2 into
Ubuntu 16.04.1 if it's released in time.  16.04.1 is currently scheduled for
July 21st [1] so if Larry keeps with his announced schedule that should work

Obviously it would make it into Yakkety too.  It's not worth it for Wily
(15.10) since that EOLs next month.
