Seconding this, I contribute to (and recently became a maintainer of) a relatively popular package that supports Python 2 and 3. We have 3 dependencies, and none of them are six.

To be fair, one of our three dependencies does in fact depend on six, but we don't use six anywhere in our code. This dependency of ours is used only in one specific area of the codebase, and in fact I (the person who added the dependency) wish that we didn't have to use it at all.
