So - as an update to this, this is due to RedHat once again choosing to
backport features from 2.7 into a thing they have labeled 2.6.

We test 2.6 on Centos6 - which means we get RedHat's patched version of
Python2.6 - which, it turns out, isn't really 2.6 - so while you might
want to assume that we're testing 2.6 - we're not - we're testing

This brings up a question - in what direction do we care/what's the
point in the first place?

Some points to ponder:

 - 2.6 is end of life - so the fact that this is coming up is silly, we
should have stopped caring about it in OpenStack 2 years ago at least
 - Maybe we ACTUALLY only care about 2.6-on-RHEL - since that was the
point of supporting it at all
 - Maybe we ACTUALLY care about 2.6 support across the board, in which
case we should STOP testing using Centos6 which is not actually 2.6

I vote for just amending our policy right now and killing 2.6 with

(also, I have heard a rumor that there are people running in to problems
due to the fact that they are deploying onto a two-release-old version
of Debian. No offense - but there is no way we're supporting that)
