Upgrade wadamin jyton to Python 3.9.4

We have a requirement to update WAS settings from within the secure wsadmin.sh runtime.

The updates require calling out to other servers in our network using REST-ful calls. The GitHub "requests" module meets most needs. But we can not use it because the Jython version is so old.

    Thank you for the suggestion. The requirement does have merit, there is currently no Jython support for Python 3.9.4 and it's not clear when one would be available. Given the unlikelihood that we would deliver this in the next couple of years, we are declining the request rather than leaving it in an uncommitted state for an extended period of time. If you would like to discuss this decision further, please contact Michael C Thompson <mcthomps@us.ibm.com>.
