build on Python 2.6 broken and strongly suggested minimum version

Selsky broke the build[1] back in May 2020 when switching the
python_scripts variable in /wscript to a set when Python 2.6
does not support sets. Given the lack of complaints, I suspect
no one uses 2.6 anymore, which can be dropped.

I also think that we should drop all Python versions before
3.7 from first-tier support and only continue supporting them
if it is not inconvenient or there is sufficient proven

python_scripts so we don't have duplicates"
