I'm sure all the cool kids are using something like
https://www.sshguard.net/ or blacklistd
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuuf8G28mjs anyway :)

The rationale for dropping tcpwrappers was that it was a subset of
OpenSSH's built in Match functionality, and dropped a dependency
- I think someone even submitted a small patch back to trigger
tcpwrappers from Match.

and thankfully there are also other ssh client implementations which
support sshv1 or similar to connect to older boxes :)
