It should be fine to remove it on 2.7+

The team can't yet remove it from its requirements.txt until we drop 2.6 
support (which should happen soon(ish) afaik), but the way that import 
is used is that it always tries to import the one from collections 
before falling back to the one from the library.

For example:


So on 2.7 and newer u should be able to just remove that requirement 
(via a patch or other) and all will be merry (and once we can drop 2.6 
support this will also go away).
