  * Some services seem to (still) have coroutine scheduling bugs:
    they're calling functions from the wrong coroutine.  The utilities
    in tripemon would be useful, but they're tied to the glib event
    loop.

So here's the proposed fix.

  * SelCommandDispatcher is a mistake.  Split its functionality out into
    a separate class which can be plugged into TripeConnection or one of
    its descendants, so that clients which want a glib-based dispatcher
    can replace it without having to overturn the class hierarchy.

  * Move the scheduling utilities (`idly', `aside') from tripemon into
    tripe.py.  Make them available from services by providing a main
    loop in TripeConnection.

A few more wrinkles.

  * `idly' is renamed `defer' because that's what it does now: rather
    than waiting until there are no events incoming, it clears the decks
    of all deferred operations before looking for more events.

  * The interface of `spawn' has changed.  You provide a function to
    call in a new coroutine rather than a freshly minted coroutine that
    needs hacking.  All uses of `spawn' fit this pattern, so it's not a
    big deal, but it's worth mentioning.
