Please do not remove support for Python 2.7. In our industry (EDA - Electronic Design Automation) there is a huge legacy codebase of custom scripts in Python 2, and close-to-zero adoption of Python 3. Our customers expect to be able to write scripts in Python 2, and we expect to have to support it for years to come. 

If Qt6 withdraws support for Python 2 then we'll be unable to adopt Qt6 - simple as that.
