There wasn't a whole lot of discussion about it in the original
thread, but I thought it might be an interesting project for a student
to chase down.

The thread that started here:

Which ended up with the PoC here:

Realistically this might depend on the Python3 EPEL work[0] if we can'
t get a bug fix sorted out for Python 2.7.x[1]

The GSoC proposal would need some work to define objectives for the
student to work on to define scope of project work and quantifiers for
success/failure of the student's work. I have a couple ideas around
that but would be open to others brainstorming.

It might be a bit off in the weeds of a proposal but I thought I'd
bring it up and see what others thought.
