This question is actually for the Zope folks and others who have had
problems with the 2.6 asyncore/asynchat:

Are any of the problems due to a change in the documented API... or are they
all due to changes in undocumented internals that your code relied on?

Myself, the only change that I noticed going from 2.5 to 2.6 was that the
undocumented signature of asynchat.__init__() changed from taking a
parameter called "conn" to one with the same meaning called "sock".
