I went a bit aggressive with dropping older python version support 馃槄
This PR makes 3.7 the min supported version.

Is this reasonable?

The test pipelines do not work with 3.8, 3.9 and 3.10 (#701) but I think the code itself should work.

Thanks for dropping Python 2 support (finally!)

As for dropping 3.6 right now, I do think that is too aggressive. I do know various projects are also aggressively dropping support within the 3.x series but I also think there are still plenty of users still using python 3.6...

Edit: Are there any 3.7 specific syntax changes here? I assume the syntax changes here (e.g. f-strings) are also fine with 3.6...

The syntax should be fine with 3.6 too.

Once the tests pass, I think it looks good to merge!
