[Twisted-Python] Twisted O'Reilly Book

I saw Glyph's blog the other day about OSCON and a suggestion by someone 
attending OSCON to write a book about Twisted. I think it would be really 
sweet if there existed an O'Reilly book for Twisted. I think the great 
people who started and contributed to Twisted deserve a standalone book, and 
I think it would be great for bringing more people into the Twisted 
community. It was only a few months ago at the end of May that OSAF 
announced that they're using Twisted (and I think a lot of people have 
respect for OSAF and Mitch Kapor, the father of Lotus Notes): 

What are the requirements for writing a book (besides time)?

For the front cover of of the Twisted O'Reilly book, I would like to propose 
that the animal chosen be the Black Ghost Knife fish which is found in the 
mysteryious depths of the Amazon region in South America. These fish are 
amazing creatures. They can be trained to take food from the hand of a human 
and the natives in South America treat these fish with respect. They also 
have an electrical sensory system which helps them find food at night and in 
murky waters. They also have a long undulating bottom find that they use to 
swim forward and backward very rapidly and with precision. Here are some 
photos and links:


How about it?
