I just pushed a rebased version of this branch to a new 'python-updates'
branch on Savannah, with Python 3.6.3 and 2.7.14.  I also have an update
for 'python-hypothesis' coming, probably this weekend.

Wrt the reproducibility patch, I've tried to cherry-pick
<> but got a couple of new
test failures.  I have been really busy lately and got an injury to
boot, so my work capacity is limited and any help very welcome.

Closing this bug since the patches are "out there", but feel free to
continue the discussion.  I don't expect a lot of problems due to this
update, so we can probably handle it on 'core-updates'.
