Even if it isn't released in 2.0, I don't see any reason it can't stay 
in Twisted. If it is made to work after 2.0 release, we could release 
Twisted Core 2.1, with the main new feature being Pavel's awesome IOCP 
support. I'm not proposing to remove any reactors from SVN, just omit 
the currently non-working ones from the release tarball.

But, as for it working right now for TCP: the buildlogs show a bunch of 
failures in twisted.mail.test.test_imap.NewFetchTestCase, which I 
assume is a "simple" (besides the IMAP part of course) TCP server, 
followed by the buildslave going belly-up. This seems to be consistent 
through all the buildlogs I looked at.
