Would it be fine to just remove the old *.sh script, or is it preferred to have
them both living next to each other for some time?
I'd like to keep the old script around for a while, to make comparison
between the two scripts easier.

I'd prefer a formulation that can be copy-pasted to the command line, f.i.:
# The script requires python packages, which can be installed via pip3

# $ pip3 install unidiff termcolor
I'm not sure if it's possible in python, but it would be even better to
detect the missing packages at runtime and print a message explaining
how to install the missing packages.
Anyway, using your explanation I now managed to install the dependencies
and run the script. [ Earlier I ran into the missing package error,
googled the package, found https://pypi.python.org/pypi/unidiff, ran the
suggested install line '$ pip install unidiff', and found that the
script still was not working. ]
