Larry: would you be ok to turn this protection off on the 3.4 branch?
Or would you feel more confortable if only a few people would be
allowed to push to the 3.4 branch, so add me a whitelist group or
something like that?

As I wrote, my plan is not only to merge my security fixes, but also
to work on a CI. I would feel more confortable to see the Travis CI
test result on my security PRs.
