calculation of shannon entropy (bits/char [float] as well as whole-word total entropy [int])

It is just for sw developers so they can display the total entropy to users when they define a new password or use it in a password validator.
It's not a perfect or great solution (as there can be none, see docstring), but maybe sucks less and is more well-defined as primitive or made-up password quality metrics quick hacks usually invented out there for these purposes.
