I thought I'd have a try at building this (under Windows, using the mingw
compiler). Some issues:

1. (In the sumo setup.py) Windows doesn't have os.spawnvp. On the other
   hand, os.spawnv works fine, as sys.executable is absolute on Windows.
2. (In twisted\topfiles\setup.py) There's no win32/twisted_postinstall.py
   anywhere. I don't know if there should be one - for now, I just removed
   the reference to it.
3. If I do python setup.py bdist_wininst, the resulting installer calls
   itself Twisted-Web-0.5.0. I'd expect (prefer) it to be called Twisted-2.0.
   If that's not acceptable, I'd rather see the sumo setup.py build
   multiple installers, one for each subpackage (but that's very suboptimal,
   as I would much rather just install a "batteries included" Twisted

Hope this is of some help,
