Please update the metadata on the PyQt6-sip and PyQt5-sip packages in 
PyPI. They have this in sip.h:

/* Sanity check on the Python version. */
#if PY_VERSION_HEX < 0x03070000
#error "This version of PyQt6.sip requires Python v3.7 or later"

but still



This will cause some grief on user's machines, which are stuck with the 
EOL Python 3.6 (e.g. openSUSE Leap 15.3 and even upcoming 15.4) and try 
to install PyQt into their user sitelib via pip.
