If a proper fix for 2.6 cant be found quickly, any use of Wikibase
WbQuantity should raise an exception in py2.6, which effectively means
Wikibase support for py2.6 is dropped because it is erroneous.
Dropping Wikibase support for py2.6 also solves the ordereddict
But I think we may instead drop support for py2.6
ourselves on py2.7 → py3k.
I agree with focusing on py3, and dont care much about py2.6 support myself.
no more need for external dependencies like
less work for Travis-CI
new features like dict comprehension, etc.

Some of those reasons are no longer valid. e.g. cygwin now includes
Python 2.7. It seems some of the people wanting 2.6 support would be
happy to move away from 2.6 if we supported Python 3 which is packaged
for them. We should re-check all the other reasons for keeping 2.6 to
see what the effect will be.
Also, that survey doesnt appear to differentiate between compat and
core. Perhaps compat can continue to support 2.6, while core drops
support for 2.6.
