My guess is that it may complicate other things. Let's just branch 7.6 in
Subversion and apply the patches to trunk afterwards. Anna's suggestion of
a quick 7.8 release with Python 3 support makes sense. I'm just afraid that
this might create big time gap between 7.8 and 8.0. In that case, I would
lean towards putting these patches to 7.6 but only in case there is a lot
of people eager to test the code ideally with both Python 2 and 3 because
we won't be switching to Python 3 being the recommend one yet (or?). In any
case, there is no reason to postpone branching of 7.6. This can be still
decided and merged later before 7.6.0 RC1.
