Itamar, looks like you have a really good use case there -- in 
particular, I'd like to upgrade twisted "core" without updating 
twisted.web till it is more stable and I've had time to update
my code dependencies.  If the 'twisted' modules could stay
within twisted.* I would prefer this, but this, alas is up
to the core people... ;) Clark
