[Twisted-Python] flow is now in twisted

As of this early morning, the flow module has moved from the
sandbox into twisted.flow; for those using the sandbox version,
from twisted.flow import flow
The only change was to break flow.py into several chunks
flow/base exceptions and abstract base classes
flow/stage public stages such as Zip, Merge, Callback, etc.
flow/controller controllers, such as Block and Deferred
flow/threads threading support and QueryIterator
flow/protocol makeProtocol and Protocol
However, to make it easy, all of the public classes in
the above files have been imported into a 'mega' module:
flow/flow.py This is just a file which imports
public objects from the other files.
On the TODO list includes:
1. Link flow to what ever the next generation Consumer/Producer
interfaces are so that flow just slips in.
2. Add more to flow/protocol to support various sorts of
filters on protocols (such as an equivalent to LineReader)
3. More documentation (can there ever be enough?)
4. A "C" version, when the time is ripe; this will mostly
focus on two functions: Stage.next() and _Iterator._yield()
In the next 3 months I won't have much time to throw at this, but
I am always open to suggestions and improvements.
Extra thank-yous to Etrepum, Itamar, Exarkun, Radix, Glyph, and Pahan.
Share and Enjoy!
