Lest anyone misunderstand, please take note:  This does *not* mean that
twisted.web is unmaintained, obsolete, or deprecated.  You do not need
to drop all of your code in favor of a BaseHTTPServer re-write.  Bugs in
twisted.web will continue to be fixed, and if twisted.web2 is ever finished
it will provide a compatible API layer so that it can run your existing
twisted.web-based applications.
