Well the reason we didn't retire it after everything migrated to stestr was that
the repo contained other utilities for working with subunit streams. Primarily,
the subunit2html and generate-subunit utilities. I'm not sure if they're still being
used anywhere, but at least historically subunit2html was used to generate the
interactive web view of the test results and was run at the end of every job. The
generate-subunit tool was used by at least devstack to have build failures show up
in the test results stream (this was primarily in support of reporting it to
subunit2sql which I know has recently shut down so it might not be needed anymore).

I personally don't really have any strong feelings on whether to retire the repo or
not, but at least the last time we discussed it we kept the repo around for those
other utilities.
