[Twisted-Python] new to Twisted

I would like to implement a backup client in Python - possibly with
Twisted Conch or similar tools. I would like the client to operate
like rsync through ssh, and I am not sure how I should approach this
functionality. Can I use the OS' rsync through Twisted's ssh client?
Is there a python module that can be used through twisted's ssh
client? Has anyone on this list worked on anything like this?
I saw this posted on a newsgroup:

I am not sure how true this is after reading the twisted docs and
I did some searching in the twisted archives, but not all of it...
sorrry in advance if this topic has been hammered into the ground.
