- Update to upstream 1.6

- Remove unnecessary dependencies: python3-unittest2 and wget which

- Better group dependencies: Many dependencies are only required for
fedabipkgdiff, so let's put them under the right conditional.
- Split fedabipkgdiff to its own subpackage
This tool is very specific, and only useful to Fedora developers,
not all developers. It also has lots of dependencies which aren't
required by the other tools. Splitting it to its own specialized
package makes the main package, with its library and utilities,
much lighter.
