I hope he does remove that precise code, which I believe spawned this 

Not only is this import going in the wrong direction and depending upon 
an unspecified version of Nevow within Twisted, the code is /already/ a 
plug-in, which could easily be distributed along with Nevow rather than 
along with Lore.

This is exactly what should happen.
