I had so much fun with epydoc that I thought I would dive in with another that 
I am interested in.  See  
I have a few questions;

I used the Python version in the package name.  I think that this is correct 
because it installs some files into the Python site-packages directory so I 
assume that it can be installed against multiple versions.  Does that seem 
correct to everyone?

I have put all the documents into share/doc/${PYPKGPREFIX}-twisted rather than 
trying to move them up between doc and examples.  The main reason for that is 
that the package installs everything with a HTML index page and I would have 
to muck with that to make it work.  Anyone see any reason to bother?

It was suggested that I use pkgsrc-wip for these things.  I thought that that 
was for people without commit access.  Did I misunderstand?  It sure seems 
like a waste of time to import to one tree just so a developer (perhaps even 
the same one) can re-import it into the main tree.  Either way I would 
discuss it before importing it to the tree.

If developers are expected to start packages in pkgsrc-wip then perhaps we can 
add something to explaining that.
