I received the following message in private (I assume) email after
my last post to the newsgroup.  Comments are welcome, preferably
public ones (merely because I consider private discussions about
this kind of thing to be a severe waste of my limited time).

Am I over-hyping Twisted?  Am I over-publicizing my satisfaction?
Is anyone over-hyping it?  Is there a maximum acceptable target level 
of hype?
