I'm sorry, but I had to revert that patch, it was causing gazillions of
failures in the autobuilders. The Python build process now tries to use
os.replace(), which is only available since Python 3.3. It would work
if the host-python interpreter was being used, but the system Python
interpreter is used, causing the build failure.

It is worth noting that the problem happens in the regen-importlib make
target, and that there is already some code in python3.mk to handle
issues related to that. See line 162 and following.
