On "Designing Twisted            
Applications" (            
for me, it would seem more natural to put the interface, IQuoter,  next to the          
protocol and factory implementation, QOTD(Protocol) and QOTDFactory(Factory),      
instead of the concrete implementation of a Quoter, StaticQuoter and 
That is because there will be one protocol implementation, which is a reusable 
library while there would be many implementations of programs using that 
library and all of them would need to implement IQuoter.

Yes, that seems sensible.

I moved the interface and made a few other very small fixes to things nearby. TwistedQuotes needs some serious attention and more work than I'm going to give it now, though.

Looks good. I even ran the code to test it.

(In [24129]) Apply twistedquotes.diff, improving the organization of code in the quote example

Author: exarkun Reviewer: radix Fixes: #1489

Move the IQuoter interface to be close to the factory which uses it, instead of being close to the one implementation of it. This more closely resembles the organization of a real program, where the user of an interface does not know or care where the implementation comes from, only that it behaves correctly, and where there may be several implementations of the interface in different places.
