When merging #104 I kept wrong links to interfaces when renaming them, it should be fxied. OTOH I'm not sure pointing to private interfaces is really useful.

Fix seems correct as far as it goes.

However I have a concern about #104, related to the SSL/zlib CRIME attack. I wonder if the encoders argument to Site is safe at all (if it isn't, then maybe it's not worth applying documentation fixes).

therve offered to introduce a more focusable API for encoders before the next Twisted release, or revert the original merge to avoid committing us to supporting it. That seems fine to me. So, go ahead and merge this if you like (and please file a ticket for that adjusted API). Thanks!
