Clock is a "fake" IReactorTime implementation; as the docstring says,
it is intended for writing unit tests where you want control over the
behaviour of the clock, rather than using the real time source.

As for the other things... LoopingCall repeatedly runs a callable at a
certain interval, coiterate takes a generator and iterates it
cooperatively (returning control back to the reactor between
iterations), and cooperate is a new-and-improved version of coiterate
which I haven't looked at yet.
