This might be confusing to old people. PLIP is a protocol for
transporting IP packets over the parallel port.
I agree that the name is a bit ambiguous, but I see a couple
of reasons why it is still might be ok:

port ip protocol software only.
- it is not a python library to call it python-plip.
- any 4 letter name is ambiguous and currently
there are ~ 790 such packages.

Which should be renamed in this case.
