It does look like it supports more IPv4 address formats than ipaddr/ipaddress, 
so I'm not 100% sure it should be removed.  It provides some utilities in 
/usr/bin that might be used, so the lack of reverse-depends alone isn't really 
demonstrative of if it should stay or go.

It does not support python3.
