Well, tbh I think that's a bit silly.  First of all, it shouldn't be 
installed in your system-wide python3 interpreter.  Second, I assumed 
core devs were compiling their own Python interpreters locally in their 
account--in no small part so they can install any packages they want.  
And finally, you're asking me to give up f-strings.

If someone else wants to send me a PR getting it to work on 3.5, I'd 
look at it.  I'm guessing it's really just f-strings but I can't say for 
sure what else is a 3.6 dependency.
