3.4.0 is not a branch, it's one (the first) release on the 3.4 branch. So
nothing can "flow back" there, 3.4.1 is the next release from that branch.

We're fine with committing small patches where we can easily see that no harm
is done to other platforms. This helps maintainers of non-official ports, since
it reduces the number of trivial patches they have to keep updated.
Officially supporting a platform is another matter: it would mean committing
resources to making sure as much of the Python core and standard library as
is sensible runs on it, and keeps running in the future.
