Oh, so dicoclient-python is a library package, rather than itself
being a dico client?  In that case I'd make it something like this:

  Package: dicoclient-python
  Description: RFC 2229 compliant modular dictionary server (client library)
   GNU Dico is an implementation of the DICT protocol as defined in RFC 2229.
   It is fully modular: the daemon itself (dicod) provides only the server
   functionality, and knows nothing about database formats. Actual searches
   are performed by functions supplied in loadable modules. A single module
   can serve one or more databases.
   This package contains a Python module that provides a Dico client and a
   simple interactive shell.

JBR	with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
	sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
