[r19.03] pythonPackages.cherrypy: fix build #73432
Motivation for this change
I realize 19.03 is long in the tooth, but the recent minor bump to its python releases broke
The v17 version of cherrypy we have is still broken on 19.09 and master. There are several packages broken on 19.09 due to this. Master on the other hand I think has indirectly v17 disabled likely due to a phasing out of python2 in preparation for it's 2020 EOL. Edit: Maybe not, but it isn't being built by hydra
Both the patch on this PR and the one in d57d67e when ported fix release-19.09 (and likely master too if it was possible to build)
@jonringer This is all implied of course. I was thinking that we should not completely discourage motivated individuals from backporting fixes to the older releases. However, they should keep in mind that: first, they would need to do most of the work of proving that the changes are safe, and, second, that the EOL channels often get blocked and may not advance to the newer commits without some additional fixes to other parts of NixOS.
