In particular, this was a release management problem for Divmod, 
because we've been making changes to the imap4 code (which is in the 
"protocols" package), that our code depends on, but we can't release 
all of Twisted at once fast enough to roll out a minor change, because 
going through the full QA process for the whole system takes too long.  
We are trying to decouple things more so that a project which requires 
bugfixes in twisted.web doesn't accidentally suck in in-progress 
changes to the reactor as well.
