Actually we decided that this was confusing and didn't provide much benefit,
so everything is going to be 8.0.  As a consequence, it will be easier to tell
when a Twisted installation is bogus, because the version number of the sub-
projects won't match up with each other or with the overall Twisted version

Yep, a really big one that David Reid and Christopher Armstrong spent a lot
of time writing up.
