At work (where we still have some machines with Redhat 7.3) we solve
this by installing our own version of Python in a non-clashing
namespace. It's very easy to do, and you could make it completely
transparent to your users (a few more files in the RPM).

Alternatively, you could probably with a little work either add relevant
bugfixes to older version of Twisted, or make the parts of Twisted you
use work with Python 2.2.
