Any chance we can drop this to 3.4+?

SLES 12 has Python 3.4 available. General support for SLES 12 (currently
using a Python 2 build) ends in 2024. Freezing the cloud-init version
for 4 years on SLES 12 is a really long time. The other option is being
more or less on my own with backports and that's not a great outlook. If
you'd be willing to support Python 3.4 and greater that would make those
issues go away.
