In general I agree even though I don't know exactly what code you have
in mind -- if the code is dead there's no reason to keep it.

I've noticed that e.g. if the hostname can't be resolved, verify_fqdn raises an exception, so some of the checks below the "ip = resolve_host(host_name)" line in ipa-server-install are unnecessary, but I'm not yet sure if I'm not missing something.

TODO: Workarounds for netaddr bugs (?)

Are these bugs reported upstream? I know you mentioned some in an
earlier e-mail, just wondering if they are the same.

Long term, it might be better to fix them in netaddr rather than working
around them.

Yes, they're the same and are already fixed (according to the netaddr bug tracker), but there's no release with the fixes yet (or it's not in Fedora). There are not any big issues that I'm aware of, it's just that if you specify incorrect netmask with an IPv4 address, the error message isn't very helpful to the user:

UnboundLocalError: local variable 'ip' referenced before assignment
