I don't think this should be bundled into the base installer. 

a: The installer's already up around 10M - adding Twisted 
makes it that much larger
b: Shipping it as part of the Official Installer suggests
that Twisted will follow then standard Python release 
process, which means you have to worry about deprecations
and the like
c: There will be confusion for users with bugs - do they
submit an entry to the python bug tracker?

But I _would_ like to see asyncore more aggressively deprecated...
