I noticed this when we switched over to using cryptography. I think at the time
the consensus was - meh. IIRC, it's an issue that we use an older version of
pypy. If system packages are available for a newer version, it probably would
be good to test that. But I have never seen pypy use in the wild, so I'm not
sure if it would be worth the effort.

Maybe easier just declaring pypy unsupported for service projects?
