[Interest] PySide2 installer for windows?

Point 1: At the official first release of Qt For Python / PySide2 which was
bundled with Qt 5.11, we never provided py27 windows packages. So
officially, we haven't dropped any packages, because they weren't there in
the first place.
Point 2: Packages for py2.7 for PySide2 do not exist not because of py2
EoL, but rather because the official py27 interpreter is built with MSVC
2008, whereas Qt is built with MSVC2015, and we deemed that with the
current PySide2 codebase, it is not safe to mix MSVC runtimes.
This was communicated multiple times, and is mentioned on the wiki as well.
Yet people still insist on bringing it up, disregarding that such packages
are not safe to use.
People are free to try and build Py2.7 + Qt + PySide2 with the same MSVC
version, and use that.
