Install fails when up-to-date python-dateutil is installed

See original GitHub issue

error: python-dateutil 2.7.0 is installed but python-dateutil<2.7.0,>=2.1 is required by {'botocore'}

Should the <2.7.0 part maybe be replaced with something like <3.0.0 or is python-dateutil known to break its API in minor updates?

This currently prevents me from using boto3 on a system.

But that makes the implicit assumption that if I have python-dateutil >=2.7.0 installed then I must also be running python 2.6 which isn’t correct. By making this assumption you now basically have stopped supporting all new systems out there.

python-dateutil-2.7.0 already specifies python2.7 as a requirement:

python_requires=">=2.7, !=3.0.*, !=3.1.*, !=3.2.*",

So if a user has python-dateutil-2.7 installed then he must be running at least python2.7 and there is no reason for boto3 not to install.
