Regarding tablib, cliff has had its own table formatter for some time, 
and now has its own json and yaml formatters. I believe the only tablib 
formatter left is the HTML one, which likely wouldn't be missed if it 
was just dropped (or it could be simply reimplemented inside cliff).

If the cliff deb depends on cliff-tablib I would recommend removing that 
dependency and just stop packaging cliff-tablib.
