So if we'd like to support all Python version, we'd need a third branch 
using the distro package and hope it will work for at least a few 
years... Great job, Python.

Let's not do that. Does the attached patch help? git grep suggests that 
that may be a few more usages in the tree, but most of them may not be 
relevant to our builds.
