Well, I certainly agree with the conclusions you have drawn, with the
exception of ignoring the "twisted is hard" crowd. I think there is
value in helping people "get" what Twisted is, because I want to be
able to continue working in an ecosystem where I can say "let's write
a twisted service that does X", and not be shouted down by a team of
developers who say "boo, twisted is too hard, let's go use something,
anything, other than twisted."
Have a good one,
