I don't see a need for this package anymore; I submitted an update for
python-trezor-agent/trezor-agent that fixes the issue without using

A slightly deeper look into: Lacking backports.shutil_which caused
"trezor-agent" to fail during tests as it tried to download the missing
library, but there was no mention of shutil_which at all in any of it's
code... turned out "python-trezor-agent" had an overly strict requires
on the backported.shutil_which, even though "python-trezor-agent"
supports the shutil_which included in newer python versions. Simply
removing the backports.shutil_which from "python-trezor-agent" requires
fixed the issue.
