Would it be possible for someone to give a high level over-view
of the current state of the web/web2 code in Twisted?

I know that even pretty recently there was a thread
discussing web/web2, but it looks like (from our view, the regular users :)
that things are changing again.  In particular this ticket:


Which contains this comment from a core developer:
"twisted.web2 is being phased out in favor of twisted.web."

For those who have been following the web/web2 state for
some time now, they might be a little confused as this point.

I myself having been using twisted.web2 for a while now,
and I also know of several other projects that are doing the same.
I also have done a good amount of diving into the source code,
trying to maybe someday understand enough to contribute back,
and I hope to keep up with the current status as best as possible.

Any comments that point towards the current state of any of the parts
of web/web2 (what's "good", what's "bad", in the developers' opinion),
would be very appreciated.

Thanks for the great code,
