Just in the interest of clarity, I'm fairly certain you argued  
against this, because of the pain it would cause the developer  
involved in all aspects of Twisted as opposed to just one or two  
subprojects.  Then I wrote pthy, to try to make that kind of thing  
easier, no one used it, and now apparently you've written Combinator  
to do the same thing in a different and all together better way.  So  
I support this kind of change.

As to when it should take place it's probably a good idea to discuss  
it for at least one release to try and avoid releases getting even  
more bogged down.  I seem to recall one of the major reasons it took  
2.0 so long to get released was the logistics of making the initial  
split actually work.  On that note, I do seem to recall that you  
(glyph) suggested splitting the package distribution and doing the  
repository reorganization with a few releases in between.
