About the "phablet-tools" package

often I see the recommendation to install
phablet-toolswhen people ask for help installing UT. Sometimes together with
It probably doesn't hurt, when you're on xenial on your PC, but that package no longer exists in later versions. And it doesn't exist at all for other distros. Which I find confusing. And I don't see where it is needed during install.
Looking at the package description https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/phablet-tools it pulls in adb and fastboot, which IMHO are enough to make the installer work. Or to phrase it otherwise: if you have problems with the installer and
android-tools-fastbootare already installed, how could
phablet-toolshelp with that?
