cool, cherry-picked, thanks!

And re: "if we need to remove py2 support in some years (haha)" - I'm not sure 
why we shouldn't remove python2 support in a *few* *months*! As long as the 
new python3 codebase keeps working with python3 in wheezy, jessie and stretch. 
And I'm not even really sure how useful it is to keep it running in wheezy - 
opinions or advice anyone?
