[Twisted-web] Partial freeze of nevow coming up.

I'd like to release Nevow 0.3 from SVN HEAD basically as it is right 
now. It might be nice to put some warnings in the following modules 
mentioning that they will be moving into web2.

On second thought, I don't think url should be in web2. The url module 
is about generating URL strings mostly, so it's a function of the 
renderer. Everything else I would like to be in web2.

Moving Nevow to MIT license has already been approved. There is an 
issue in our RT tracker (which unfortunately nobody else can see) for 
switching to MIT license, but nobody has gotten time to do it. Anyone 
with commit access who has some spare time, feel free...
