WOW.  THank you for doing this, james.  This is more useful than
PyChecker output, I think.  It's also a little depresing.  We really
need a better-documented public API!

I have created 2 new issues for this, one for adding __all__ to all
modules and one for testing that it's obeyed properly.  #658 and #659,
respectively.  They are tentatively assigned to you, but I expect you
can carve up Twisted and motivate others to actually do most of the
work :).
