[Twisted-Python] suggestions for naming to help us preserve a Twisted trademark

Hi Glyph,

I think trademarking "twisted" is a good idea, if only to have
a prior claim in the (unlikely) event someone else should
try to claim it for something in the context of software.

I'm not enthusiastic about "twisty" as a naming standard for
anything -- partly from jml's observations and partly just some
aversion to it that I don't understand myself -- if I don't
mind "twisted", why would "twisty" bother me?  I dunno.
(Subconscious association with titty twisters?  <shudder>)

My $.02.


P.S.  So, did you decide the list was getting too quiet?  ;)
