Thanks for the message, Edward.

I can disable the test that is failing (test_text_display.py), but I'd
like to be more certain that the reason that is making this test to fail
is not going to cause any regressions to the user when updating the

On the one hand, one can always say that the package is already being
used with Python 3.6 as is, so maybe the regression is there already.
However, there's no guarantee that updating the package will indeed
improve the situation, so I feel a bit in doubt about the right
procedure here.

Perhaps you would you know more details about this failure?  I still
haven't heard back from upstream, and will ping them again tomorrow.

Thank you!
