Then if someone wants to continue the 1.x line of releases supporting 2.7 they can do so. ISTR that git now has some features that might aid in that. If the `requires` bit works well with pip then we can also share the same pip page (maybe).

I personally think this is definitely advisable. FWIW Bokeh will definitely be bumping major numbers when dropping Python 2 support, or classic notebook support, etc.
