Thanks, Jp -- actually, I saw them and sent my "oops"
message *just* before yours hit the list ... ;)

Yep, the API docs are definitely more explicit ...
and now I see how the docstrings for the classes were
generated, too, so that's what epydoc used.  Moshe
is pretty slick.  :)

Actually, what really would have helped would be
if the twisted.application.internet in the howto
was a link to that part of the API doc.
