Had a brief look at the diff, shouldn't be necessary at all here.
And if you want to have modifications to upstream source, please use a
patchsystem like quilt (or dpatch, but I prefer quilt), don't chage the
The newly uploaded version with the clean tarball builds fine and I
cant find any differences in behaviour or something.
I'll use quilt, if it is God's will  ;)

Great, do you have some free time? ;)
Nah, joking, I guess I'd have to do this by myself when I really need
it, until then, the good old whois(1) on the command line is enough :)
Of course command line is and still the reference for any usage,
but when i need whois in my python applications i use a basic client
that bind a socket and connect to port 43, that's all

Anyway I'll add python-whois to my todo list :)
