This broke in 5b3513177f2b. Specifically, after typing in the password on py2,
it would crash with:
TypeError: putwch() argument 1 must be cannot convert raw buffers, not str
seems fine. I assume this needs to go to stable.
This got published as 064cd182555f, without the differential URL. Probably another reviewer needs to accept/close it, because that's not an option for me.
This was taken and is now public.
