Thank you for advice and suggestion Gylph, The point is that twistedSim in
not restricted only to Twisted Framework (I.e. It can run with any
event-based network application), Its true that TwistedSim give a special
attention to Twisted (and thats where the current name came from), however
renaming it to start with tx would be unfair as this will mean that it
simulates only Twisted Framework.
I respect your intentions about adapting to standards and not to confuse
users, I will change in hopefully in the next major update the name to
something other than TwistedSim but it will probably something new that
doesn't restrict it as a Twisted extension (i.e. won't start with tx).
