I don't entirely agree. While it is true that we are not responsible
for people subscribing to Google's terms of service, I think it is
irresponsible at best to distribute a tool whose use violates those
terms, particularly without any suggestion that it might be doing so, or
any reference to those terms at all.
If someone is providing you a service that you find useful, you do not
thank them by doing things with it that they explicitly ask you not to
do. Play nice. Google has an API -- I know you don't like it, but it's
their service, it's their right to call the shots.
As long as twisted.web.google does not use the Google API, I would
prefer to see it removed from the core Twisted distribution. Feel free
to distribute it elsewhere, but with your name on it, not Twisted's.
