I don't like 'serialport' being a package, but that is a totally separate issue.  If James' changes actually fix the problem, let's just go with that and be done with it; if we make serialport not be a package later, then the need for the extra attribute will go away.

In James' defense, Twisted's coding standard actually says what serialport is doing is OK.  The portion of the standard that says this is my work, and I think the coding standard should be changed, because this is an awful hack, but one thing that can't be said about it is that it isn't officially endorsed :).

I tend to agree with your general sentiment but I don't think that this issue is important enough to hold up the re-org.  James has implemented a solution.  Let's just use it.
