I removed it from CVS because glyph is going to be releasing a new version
of Twisted soon and doesn't want non-functional packages in it.

BTW, about your non-code touching idea, for this all that would need to be
done is a simple configuration interface feature-plugin that gave the
ability to add/remove plugins and whatnot..

I just had a thought. :-) Since such a configuration interface would no
doubt need some sort of access control, I'm wondering if we could use the
authentication bits of twisted.pb (or twisted.internet.passport.. I still
don't know how any of that stuff works) without the networking stuff itself
(since communication is done through the "user agents" (glyph has pointed
out that this name doesn't really work either, btw)).
