I like the idea of calling them "eventloops", or basically anything other
than "main".  "main" tends to clash with functions in my modules, and
"eventloop" gives a clearer idea of its purpose.

Tv's suggestion looks reasonable to me... although aren't there really two
types of modules being grouped together there:
  1) Alternatives to the select-based loop (poll, win32)
  2) Add-ons that integrate Twisted's loop with other loops, e.g. gtk,
     Tk, etc...

Or do the 2nd type all assume a select-based loop?  If that's the case, I'd 
suggest they are generalised (it'd be nice for Tk to work with the win32

I guess then I'd be proposing something like:
  * twisted.internet.eventloops.{select, poll, win32}
  * twisted.internet.eventloops.addons.{gtk, tk, wx, asyncore?, ...}

I'm not really thrilled with the name "addons", but you get the idea.
