Hopefully, yes.  Fabian has not been particularly careful about that
aspect (e.g. lots of "gratuitous" renamings), so my "yes" really means
"backward incompatibilities will likely show up but will be treated as
bugs to the extent possible".

I.e. keep your eyes open for when the python.el changes and report any
problem so we can fix them promptly.  Or maybe even ask try it out right
away (https://github.com/fgallina/python.el) and work it out
with Fabian.
