Thanks! This should nicely replace some (probably buggy) ad-hoc code of mine :-)

I'm surprised: the python-build-system should take care of this. Does the package fail without it? How?

IP addresses; log files.

I'm not a fan of the way the Pypi importer needlessly indents home-page and synopsis (both fit on one line just fine), but it's up to you.

+ "Anonip masks the last bits of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses in log-files.

As above, so below: ‘log files’ &c.

Web server.  I'd drop ‘software’ and say ‘piped directly’.

Otherwise LGTM!
