1.14 Release Notes: New py3c Dependency

I just remembered that swig-py3 brings a new dependency: py3c.

The 1.14 release notes, under "Support for Python 3.x," should
document the new dependency. I think it should be in a yellow note
box:

[[[

New Dependency: py3c

Subversion's support for Python 3.x SWIG bindings introduces a new
optional dependency on the Python 3 Compatibility layer for C
extensions (py3c).

You need py3c if:
...

You don't need py3c if:
...

See the INSTALL file for a complete list of Subversion's dependencies.

]]]

And now we go down the rabbit hole of "under exactly what
circumstances do I or don't I need py3c?" :-)

Once this is sorted out, I'd like to put the same information in the
INSTALL file.

Oh, and I'd make "Python 3 Compatibility layer for C extensions
(py3c)" a hyperlink. Which begs the question: What is the canonical
link?
