I think we effectively broke this with the Python2 to Python3 migration.
rest-dbus was written in Python2 and against libraries that I think were
deprecated and never migrated to Python3.  I'm somewhat surprised that
it even installed into your image.  I would have expected it to fail
dependency needs as the libraries it depends on had been removed.

I believe everyone has effectively moved to bmcweb now, and most
platforms are not even installing Python on the BMC anymore.  I suspect
there is not much interest in reviving rest-dbus and migrating it to
full Python3.
