This is an important point - thank you for making it Tiago!

Would you advocate being even more proactive? We could deprecate
Jython support in the upcoming Biopython 1.70 release?

Currently our TravisCI setup does not use Jython (there was a tox bug
which prevented it, but that has been fixed not I think), and our buildbot
machines currently fail on Jython due to various quirks for which we
have not yet worked around in the test suite.
