Agree with Igor, I think we cannot just drop compatibility for fuel client
with 2.6 python, the reason is we have old master nodes which have
2.6 python, and the newer fuel client should work fine on these
Or we can try to install python 2.7 on the master during the upgrade.
As for Nailgun I don't see any problems to use 2.7.
