I think it is time to remove SocksiPy.  It has many problems, including
a collision with the PySocks slackbuild.  PySocks is an updated fork of
SocksiPy.  Any users can install PySocks if you need the same or similar
functionality.  Additionally, Python already ships with a socks module
if PySocks is not desirable.

I suggest that the PySocks README be updated with a link to the SocksiPy
source forge page.  That way users are not confused by the removal and
the fact that SocksiPy is a keyword for PySocks.

The home page is:  https://sourceforge.net/projects/socksipy/
