Unfortunately this includes some tests which did fail before too
(python-misaka). Marking these as python3.4 is "interesting".

In general I don't like the way how the introduction of autopkg tests forces
work on maintainers to do for the migration, when you don't have the time to
spend resources or want to use this time to improve packages in other areas.
Developer time is limited, and I'm tired being forced to spend time on broken
autopkg tests and to spend time to hunt down people to ignore failing or
stalling tests on the autopkg test infrastructure.
