Nope.  If you want responses on the mailing list, write to the mailing 
list :)

Ahem -

That seems to be a mention of both c code and a requirement for c code. 
  I haven't seen anything either on IRC or here to indicate how this 
seperate, required C code is neither required nor C :)

I understand that this comment may not apply in this situation, but I'd 
like to be clear: the reason I responded as I did is that I don't like 
the idea of adding plugin interfaces to Twisted specifically to 
introduce a dependency on so that unpublished, proprietary, or even 
separate modules are required.  Sometimes that's unavoidable (support 
for proprietary platforms requires proprietary code) but unless there is 
an overriding concern it's undesireable.
