I don't for two reasons:

0. According to the FPC, Python 2 packaging is now optional. My opinion is that
   we additionally don't want to encourage additional potential dependencies on
   Python 2 packages.
1. The upstream package says it supports Python 2, but that's only if you use
   setup.py install. Fedora additionally runs bytecompiling on all .py files,
and
   this project includes some .py files that have invalid syntax for Python 2:

   https://github.com/litl/backoff/blob/v1.4.3/backoff/_async.py#L3

   In order to get this package built for Python 2, I would have to do some
   patching to remove all non-Python 2 compatible code so that Fedora's byte
   compiling will succeed. Due to 0., I would rather not expend this effort.
