Very good question Juan. I'm someone who tend to push to the bleeding
edge for development. My opinion is that being conservative tends to
slow down everyone sooner or later.

To be more rational:
* Debian stable version (March '18), py3.5:
* Debian testing (next stable version), py3.6:

Pro to keep v3.5:
* It is likely that our next release will happen with debian stable
providing py3.5, so our release won't be pip installable.
but those people have the LTS version and they have a deb package for
skimage 0.12 https://packages.debian.org/stretch/python3-skimage

my 2 cents.
