Heyya Michael,

It's currently tied to Python 2.7 (but not to a very high degree, it's
totally backportable). It's got one dependency only in unstable
(validictory), and I don't think tests pass for some silly non-fatal
reason, but a sloppy backport isn't out of the question.

That being said, I'm not sure this is fit for a straight backport
(someone feel free to correct me).

I'll look at hacking in support for stable in a branch, given we're
likely releasing soonish anyway. If there's an overwhelming demand, I'll
see about trying to fix master / unstable for a straight backport.

Advice on this is super welcome, I'm not up to date on my backport

Thanks for asking! :)
