Should we drop python 2.7 support and add CleverHans to the list of projects pledging to drop support?
If nothing else, this would make our Travis builds schedule 2X fewer jobs.
Concretely, I think this would involve dropping the python 2.7 jobs from .travis.yml and adding a statement to the readme saying that Python 2.7 will probably work but isn't officially tested anymore, and that we won't fix Python 2.7 bugs after 2019-07-04 (or 6 months from whatever date we choose to drop support).

Yes. Python3 is is 10 years old now. The world should move on.

Besides, Python2.7 will officially EOL in 2020.
