The split of Twisted into separate projects is definitely progress in 
this direction, because tutorials for each project could be worked out 
on their own. When I first got into Twisted about a year and a half ago, 
I had relatively little trouble learning how to use the basics of 
Twisted, but figuring out how to use each component was (and is) 
intimidating. Developing a web page in Twisted and writing a chat 
server, for example, have radically different learning paths to follow.

You mentioned you're teaching someone Twisted Web -- is that just the 
twisted.web/old-woven stuff or are you taking on nevow?
