I'm not using Twisted yet, but I expect to use it within a month or two.
I'll be porting an asyncore/chat based app developed using python 2.0.
I will definitely be adding some 2.2 features at the same time, so, in
other words, no, I don't need 2.1 support :)

Not yet, but this application will see some serious usage starting in
September. It could potentially see peaks of 90k-200k clients
connecting in a 24 hour span. Hopefully I'll be able to report positive
results to this list during load-tests. Rewriting outside of
python/twisted is obviously a no-go at this point, so if load testing
comes up short we'll just throw more hardware at it!! :O
Side note: we're going to be using DNS round robin + Wackamole + Spread
toolkit for server load balancing. I haven't needed to use the python
spread interface developed by Jeremy, Guido and Tim yet
(http://www.python.org/other/spread/) but I'm wondering if anyone's
tried to integrate that into Twisted? I'd love for spread mailboxes to
be processed through reactor like any other socket :)
