I looked and there aren't any major compatibility hacks to handle
different minor versions of Python 3.  It's all stuff along these lines,
and not many instances:

                            const char *prompt)
                            char *prompt)

So while I think it would be fine to drop some of this, there doesn't
seem to be a big benefit to doing so.
