[Twisted-Python] questions on twisted web server

Hi all,

1) I would like to rotate the logs for the web server.  How should I do that?
I have read the rotatinglog.py example, but I don't know how to intergrate that
into the web server script below...

2) How to turn off directory listing?  Am I doing the right way below?

3) I would like to use https for certain directories, but not the whole site.
How do I do that (probably with 2 server.Site instances... I need more clues)?
For example, if a user access the site through
http://localhost/secure, then he should be redirected to

from twisted.application import internet, service
from twisted.web import static, server, util, error
from OpenSSL import SSL

class ServerContextFactory:
    '''Loads a certificate from the file 'server.pem'.'''
    def getContext(self):
        ctx = SSL.Context(SSL.SSLv23_METHOD)
        return ctx

root = static.File('/home/www/production')

# turn off directory listing
root.putChild('', error.ForbiddenResource())

site = server.Site(root, logPath='/home/www/access.log')
application = service.Application('web', uid=33, gid=33) #www-data
serviceCollection = service.IServiceCollection(application)

internet.TCPServer(82, site).setServiceParent(serviceCollection)
internet.SSLServer(443, site, ServerContextFactory()

Thanks in advance,
