Right. I've spent a few hours to fix it on all of my packages anyways.
The only thing I regret at this point, is filling the bug twice instead
of only once (ie: only once for both py2 and py3 is enough). It was hard
to read in the BTS, and it's now kind of a mess, even though all bugs
are closed, I believe.
