Not in its current form. The installation script seems to be generating two
Python2 scripts which very approximately play the role of a driver attached to
NUT's upsd. To get this to work with NUT means writing a C language X728 driver
based on the Python2 scripts. Whether it's possible to write a upsd driver in
Python3 is an open question.
Health warning. Python2 is now well past its end-of-life. No support, not even
security updates. It's urgent for X728 to migrate to Python3.
