While the init scripts are python 2, the UPS is straight I2C reads, using Python 3 to read and decode the I2C would be easy enough, if I knew how NUT needed to see things. Imma NUT Newbie 😬

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.
