[Twisted-Python] Dropping support for old cred

The modules:


constitute "classic cred", which has been deprecated for some time now.  "New cred" is available in the modules:


and offers a vastly superior API.  The only remaining code in Twisted which uses "classic cred" is the old PB log in method, which is also deprecated (in favor of one based around new cred), and the old application code (twisted.internet.app) which is also deprecated in favor of twisted.application.

It would be nice to remove this code from the next Twisted release.  Does anyone have any applications still relying on them which they plan to use with Twisted 2.1?  If so, what is preventing you from updating the code to the new, vastly improved APIs?
