Sorry, I wrote this while rather tired. Let me clarify.
I know that twisted.web 1.0 is stable and production proven.
And I know people are happy with it and love it.
Right now I have a bunch of existing scripts that crunch analytics
and are already built on mechanize and run as cronjobs.
I'm transitioning some to a job queue system , trying to optimize
some resources by handling it all within twisted.
My winwin situation on choosing mechanize is in part , because
a) it involves copy-pasting a few lines and reusing classes I
already have -- hopefully wrapping it into the event loop -- vs
porting a bunch of stuff to twisted.web.client1
b) its actively maintained, which means i get some random new
features on their development list that I need already ( like
integrated beautful soup support ). most that stuff is trivial and
easily implemented in twisted, but i don't have to do that work. its
done (in mechanize ).
So I'd like to stay within mechanize. and I think i've got a way to
wrap it into twisted.
Thanks for the suggestions and trying to put me on the right track.
