warner Merge branch 'dilate-5'
This adds (but does not enable/expose) the low-level code for the new
Dilation protocol (refs #312). The spec and docs are done, the unit tests
pass (with full branch coverage).

The next step is to write some higher-level integration tests, which use a
fake/short-circuited mailbox connection (Manager.send) but real localhost TCP

Then we need to figure out backwards compatibility with non-dilation-capable
versions. I've got a table in my notes, I'll add it to the ticket.

Magic Wormhole

PyPI Build Status Windows Build Status Docs

Get things from one computer to another, safely.

This package provides a library and a command-line tool named wormhole, which makes it possible to get arbitrary-sized files and directories (or short pieces of text) from one computer to another. The two endpoints are identified by using identical "wormhole codes": in general, the sending machine generates and displays the code, which must then be typed into the receiving machine.

The codes are short and human-pronounceable, using a phonetically-distinct wordlist. The receiving side offers tab-completion on the codewords, so usually only a few characters must be typed. Wormhole codes are single-use and do not need to be memorized.

For complete documentation, please see or the docs/ subdirectory.
