I'm sorry, it appears I'm mistaken. I was thinking that the telnet protocol
implementation moved to twisted.conch in the Great Split of Two Point Oh,
but I see that this was something else. The implementation in conch is
definitely different (and probably better), but I don't think my comment
about the state of documentation and stability is any less true.
