rsh uses the rlogin protocol.  The rlogin protocol is immensely trivial.  A Twisted implementation would probably be less than 10 lines, but one is not included with Twisted.  Implementing it would probably be easier than shelling out to an rsh(1) binary.  Twisted *does* include an SSH implementation, though.  In most cases that is vastly preferable.

Twisted uses epydoc markup extensively.  The resulting automatically generated documentation is available at <http://twistedmatrix.com/documents/current/api/>.

Diving into the source is also a really good way to become familiar with what Twisted can do.  This can also give you a sense of the level of completion and polish a particular area of Twisted has, which is not always readily apparent from the API documentation.
