Python abi3 wheels

When updating the Python cryptography package from v1.x to v2.7 I could not find a manylinux1 wheel for Python 3.6. It turned out I was not the only person to notice this. However what I learnt is that past v2.1.4, Cryptography publish “abi3” wheels. (See PEP 425)

These are rough notes from whatever I was working on, interested in or thinking about at the time. They vary greatly in quality and length, but prove useful to me, and hopefully to you too!
