pyn is dead, long live pyn

Just about eight years ago I started working on an IRC bot using Twisted, pynfo. I managed to stay interested in working on it for about six months. I kept running an instance of it until this morning. Over the years its features have slowly decayed: it hasn't relayed messages between networks or announced pypi releases for years; more recently changes to Freenode have stopped it from even responding to commands.

As such an old project, I wrote it before I knew about things like unit tests, so even if I were interested in maintaining an IRC bot anymore, it would be easier to start over than try to resuscitate pynfo. Thus, pynfo, I consign you to oblivion. Rest in peace:
