I dread the day that parts of Twisted start making it into Python
core. If it ever does, though, I want to "brute-force" the versioning
issue and put it in a top-level package with a name other than
"twisted" (And I'm sure Guido would agree, as he doesn't like names
like "twisted" and "optik"). That way if we continue to develop bits
that are also in Python, there will be no versioning clashes. We've
all seen this issue with the (*flinch* *flinch*) `xml' package.
