I don't know .Net, but from experience and months of lurking, I would
say the Twisted newbie experience is characterised by waves of confusion
and euphoria. The learning curve is juddery, but generally enjoyable.
The closest thing to Woven I have used is Axkit (perl warning:
http://axkit.org/), but of course Twisted as a whole is deeper and
wider. If you can take advantage of that, and if you have a bit of
time, then I would recommend Twisted. But if you have just a few weeks
to make a boring web app, you might be better off with any old *SP.
