New submission from Jean-Paul Calderone <exarkun at divmod.com>:

I ran 2to3 over Twisted r27084 like this:

time ~/Projects/python/trunk/python
/home/exarkun/Projects/python/trunk/Tools/scripts/2to3 -j 4 twisted/ >

Visual inspection revealed some curious defects, and attempting to apply
it failed like this:

$ patch -p0 < 2to3.patch 
patching file twisted/application/app.py
patching file twisted/conch/client/connect.py
patching file twisted/conch/client/default.py
