[Twisted-web] [PATCH] Are we ready for a Page.remember fix?

This was suggested a long time ago, and when I tried adding it, I broke
Quotient somewhat badly. From what I can tell, the problem in Quotient which
prevented Page.remember from being changed has been fixed; I'd like to see
this patch added.

Some have suggested a SiteContext as an alternative; however, I see these
two as addressing two different concerns. A SiteContext (as described in
Roundup <http://divmod.org/users/roundup.twistd/nevow/issue137>) would be
good for remembering data that are universal to a specific NevowSite
instance. However, this is not my use case.

In my case, I want my Realm to be able to remember objects that are
particular to a certain logged in user. The obvious example is an
ICurrentUser interface, which lets the resource hierarchy quickly reference
what user (if any) is logged in. I'm sure I'll come up with other uses, but
this is my current need. Doing this at the SiteContext level would (from
what I can tell) produce overlaps when more than one user is logged in.

So, are there any objections to Page.remember()? Even if it's not an elegant
solution, it works for me, and it's generic enough that I think it's worth
