Note About Pyzmail36

This module doesn't install pyzmail36. The latest version of Python's setuptools module has deprecated some functionality, and trying to install pyzmail36 with it results in a "use_2to3 is invalid" error message.

To install pyzmail36, you need to first install version 58.0.0 of setuptools with the following command:

pip install --user setuptools==58.0.0

Then you can install pyzmail36:

pip install --user pyzmail36==1.0.4

Then you can update setuptools to the latest version again:

pip install --user -U setuptools

I'm currently working with the maintainer of pyzmail36 to have this issue fixed.
