Great! FYI these versions fix two security vulnerabilities:

(*) CVE-2018-1000117: Buffer overflow vulnerability in os.symlink on Windows
http://python-security.readthedocs.io/vuln/cve-2018-1000117_buffer_overflow_vulnerability_in_os.symlink_on_windows.html

(*) CVE-2018-1060: difflib and poplib catastrophic backtracking
http://python-security.readthedocs.io/vuln/cve-2018-1060_difflib_and_poplib_catastrophic_backtracking.html

3.4.9 and 3.5.6 have no more known security vulnerabilities :-)
