I refer you to James' post. I'm fairly happy with your solution
(although I still think that structurally it is less pleasant that
having the implementation modules be in a package), but I'll let you
and James debate it.

The way I see it is that you put a horrible hack in trial to work
around a problem that wouldn't happen if the code actually followed
Twisted's coding convention.
