[Twisted-Python] Things I broke

  Currently two pieces of code (that I can find) rely on app.listenTCP() to
bind to a unix socket if the port parameter is a string instead of an
integer.  This no longer works (and rightly so).  However, there is
currently no twisted.internet.app.Application.listenUNIX method.  Adding one
(along w/ connectUNIX) would solve the problem.  As would using the
listenWith method instead.

  I don't know what the thoughts on the portability of the methods in
Application are - is adding listen/connectUNIX appropriate?

  I feel a minor twinge at the thought of using listen/connectWith for this,
as twisted.internet.unix is an internal module, and it is probably wrong to
use such an internal module in one of the places (Twisted.web's tap's
--personal flag) and definitely wrong in the other
(doc/examples/silly-web.py).  These methods were intended for
connectors/ports not included with Twisted, not as a workaround for missing
api functionality.

  So... thoughts?


Seduced, shaggy Samson snored.
She scissored short.  Sorely shorn,
Soon shackled slave, Samson sighed,
Silently scheming,
Sightlessly seeking
Some savage, spectacular suicide.
