[Twisted-Python] how to use --index= and doc vagueness

I'm trying to understand how the twisted web is supposed to work. I'm using
the web tap and have a public_html dir where I place all the html and .rpy
The --help for web does not seem clear to me. How do I make t.w use an rpy to
be used instead of an index or index.html for when one goes to:
As it is, mozilla times out with some kind of strange redirection error if I
don't have index or index.html
Using the --resource-script=index.rpy (that's what I call the default .rpy
file) option and placing the index.rpy file in public_html does not work.
Twisted complains about not find the file even though it's in the very
directory that it normally finds html and rpy files.
pointing browser to
http://www.mysite.com/index.rpy works though.
Lastly, documentation vagueness.
In the Twisted 1.0.5rc2 docs - about Twisted web, the section about virtual
hosts. What does it mean by simply "drop vhost.rpy" ? Where exactly are you
supposed to drop that file?
Could we also have more of an explanation of the virtual host directive? I
eg. Lets say we want to host virtually the domains:
have a dirs called
On the real host myserver.com (all on one machine)
XXXXXX -> here we should state how to set up the virtual host (the addHost()
method) and where to put the public_html dirs.
