Description (last modified by Jean-Paul Calderone)

#4671 proposed adding a lot of new symbolic constant features to a helper somewhere in Twisted. This is for the kind of symbolic constant that has an associated value (perhaps unique? perhaps not? perhaps those are both valueable use cases), assigned either manually or automatically from a monotonically increasing sequences of integers.

This would be useful in the HTTP implementation, in the IRC implementation, in the telnet implementation, and probably in lots more places.

  1. _ConstantsContainer still has references to NamedConstants and Names. Likewise _EnumerantsInitializer.
  2. I'd move NamedConstant to be next to Names, rather than off elsewhere in the code.
  3. lookupByValue should document, and test, that if there are multiple constants with same value, the first one will be returned.

Once you fix those, feel free to merge.
