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.
