This is all pretty much done, in branches/tv/log.

This is still ugly. Currently, a log of the things have an
explicit .close() you need to call, or they leave a timer
running (also making trial complain).

Current starting the timer (incrementing the reference count)
is implicit in object creation; I'm currently thinking of making
it be an explicit operation. That would make it an unnecessary
detail for any code that runs while a NevowSite factory is running,
only leaving the start/stop in things that use timestamp/log
outside of a real webserver -- mostly unit tests, that is.
