The missing module bdfactory is now available in Python 3 only.
bdfproxy is only Python 2 and it's not maintained anymore by upstream.

Update bdfproxy for Python 3 is not simple, because Python 2 and Python 3
 handle byte strings and Unicode differently.
Do we want to spend a lot of time fixing bdfproxy? This tool is broken
 since december 2018 (when backdoor-factory started using Python3) and we didn't get
any bug report as far as I know.
