What did you modify? Chances are, it might be something we would like
to support in future versions of Twisted or it may be a case where
there is another way that does not require modification of Twisted that
we could recommend to you.

It's theoretically possible, but it's neither easy nor supported.
Twisted is only about 4 megs uncompressed, so it's likely to be far
smaller than that through gzip or bzip2.

>>> size = reduce(operator.add, [os.stat(f.strip())[stat.ST_SIZE] for f
in os.popen('find . -name "*.py"')])
