Drop support for 2.6 #443

Since Python 2.6 is not supported by Python's core team anymore does it make sense to keep supporting it? Another nail in 2.6's coffin is the fact that currently the CI build for 2.6 is not even passing - dropping support for 2.6 is easier than fixing the build.

DEPRECATION: Python 2.6 is no longer supported by the Python core team, please upgrade
             your Python. A future version of pip will drop support for Python 2.6

People stuck with 2.6 can always install an older version of petl; it is 2018 and keeping support for 2.6 is not worth anymore.
