We absolutely need a policy document.  The most attractive thing about 
Twisted, to many developers, is the extremely consistent coding style, 
packaging style, and central point of distribution.  A project 
developed by 'the labs' also implicitly depends on some other core 
packages, and we need policy about things like running regression tests 
with multiple versions of dependencies in order that those core 
packages continue to support their clients correctly to even maintain 
parity with our current development process's quality level.

Some of the policy will seem obvious, but other packages don't follow 
it.  For example, we should make sure that everything uses distutils as 
its build process.
