yes, but like said before, it's not easy in the begin to know why woven
is in the midle. I've read peoples thinking twisted is a template engine !
A good separation between framework engine and library tools would be fine.

hmmm... my poor english !!!
No, i just develop classic application with web interface.

Just that it's more easy for the user, he unzip the 800ko in a
directory and click on the .exe
If i could take out what i don't need of twisted, i'm sure i can cut it

On windows, people are often afraid of installers...
Sure i will not do like that on debian system !

Yes, but it's a lot bigger.
But it's not a big problem, just that i would like to use the same
