I wrote out a big long screed in response to this, but then decided
it was probably overly harsh.

No, Twisted does not support this.  The lack of support is intentional.
There are a huge number of security-related issued with doing what Pyro
does, so Twisted doesn't do it.

In fact, PB goes in the other direction: even if the code defining the
class of an instance passed over PB is available on both sides, it _still_
might not be accepted by the recipient, if it has not been explicitly
marked as safe by the recipient.
