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:
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
