  I don't think I understand the point of those modules.  As far as I can tell they are almost never useful.  For Twisted's main use (deferToThread), they definitely aren't.

  Even so, we still need to support 2.2 for a while.  The branch I referred to mainly just disables functionality until the parts of Twisted that really don't care about threads work again.
