Well, to me "7 and a half months...left" is not EOL, and I don't know 
precisely when Python v2/Windows support was jettisoned, but you can add that 
difference to the duration as well.That's how I personally define "prematurely."

But the decision is made; I'm not instigating a brush war over it.  I'm not 
invested in PySide2, and neither are my customers. It was just going to be a 
convenience for them as long as we continued to support Python v2.  Now it won't.
