It can run with any event-based network application), Its true that TwistedSim give a special attention to Twisted (and thats where the current name came from), however renaming it to start with tx would be unfair as this will mean that it simulates only Twisted Framework. 

That sounds good to me.  I believe I saw some chatter about this in the #twisted channel on Freenode.  While I think some of the implementation decisions are ... somewhat questionable, I think it's valuable to have a network simulator for applications that don't use the Twisted APIs too :).

Your consideration is much appreciated.  I look forward to hearing the new name.
