See above.

I think it's about time to drop support for Python 2.7. This project has made many stable updates and maintained Python 2.7 support for a very long time, but many of the issues with this project stem from unicode handling issues in patterns developed very early in the Python 2 to 3 transition, patterns that today create a bimorphism of bytes on Python 2 and unicode on Python 3 that pervades the code base.

I propose we cut a backward-incompatible release dropping support for Python 2.7, but maintain a py27-maintenance branch against which critical bugfixes may be applied, but for general development in master, rely on Python 3.4+.

I honestly can't figure out why Travis isn't running tests on older Pythons. I'll leave that as an exercise for later.

@jaraco there's if-clauses, which you're probably hitting. You can always trigger manual tests run in Travis directly. We're running much more jobs on daily cron builds and API triggers (which also count as manual runs)
