pyhocon is missing the argparse dependency when installed for Python 2.6 #53

When you install pyhocon for Python 2.6:

pip install pyhocon

It does not download the 'argparse' dependency automatically. Note that this library is included in the standard library for Python >= 2.7 and >= 3.2

If you try to use the pyhocon library without it, you get:

>>> import pyhocon
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pyhocon/", line 5, in <module>
    from .tool import HOCONConverter  # noqa
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/pyhocon/", line 1, in <module>
    import argparse
ImportError: No module named argparse

It seems that pyhocon supports Python 2.6, given that the package is in the Python 2.6 pypi category.
