I favor a rewrite over removal. I have read it once/twice and have
never revisited it (the probably the reason that it was not helpful
enough for a revisit), but still gives some important pointers.

One document cannot cover it all, there are many pointers (examples at
effbot.org, Python MoTW docs) all serve as good introduction to
sockets in python.

So a rewrite with good pointers would be more appropriate.
