Python azure-iot-hub Package Issue On Linux and Mac OS

In a recent project, I faced an issue while working with azure IoT hub. I found that its python package azure-iot-hub despite +200K download per month, had not received any updates for years and it depends on deprecated azure-uamqp-python package which fails to build on certain systems such as Mac ARM and Linux ARM on Python 3.12+. To resolve the issue, I started to develop a stopgap alternative package, as temporary solution until the azure-iot-hub package undergoes necessary updates.

I uploaded the the package to pypi.org with azure-iot-hub-api name to make it available to others who might encounter similar situation.
