Or at least a set of links on the webpage that are more prevalent and 
better maintained than the success stories..  And then there's the 
hybrid of the two, where a sourceforge-like facility could (eventually) 
be provided to open source Twisted applications... but god knows that's 
a pain in the ass to setup.

Maybe when Twisted can host svn, has its own wiki and the bugtracker 
gets better.. who knows?  It'd certainly be a damn good demonstration 
of Twisted if it could run nearly the whole intranet (mail, web, dns, 
bug tracking, source code management, forums, wiki, instant messaging, 
ldap, etc.) of a software development company "out of the box".  I'd 
sure as hell use it, our exim + cyrus + openldap + ldapdns + apache + 
cvs + gforge... etc... setup is a real pain in my ass.
