    Drop python 2.6 support
    Stem still supports python 2.6, and our codebase probably works with it too.
    However, there's still a couple reasons to drop official support...
      1. Stem will be dropping python 2.6 support in its 2.x release. Python
         deprecated 2.6 long ago, and there's quite a few hacks in Stem's
         codebase to provide compatibility. Those will be going away.
         Not sure when I'll be releasing Stem 2.x, but no double it'll be
         long before Nyx's 3.x major version, so might as well drop
         official 2.6 support now.
      2. Python 2.6 packages are no longer available, making compatibility testing
         a pita. I've compiled obsolete python versions for testing before,
         and this is a chore I'd like to do without.
