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 that vary greatly in quality and length, but prove useful to me, and hopefully to you too!
