I don't think so.

See http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/3014

The code that's there basically works (TCP only; I didn't tackle UDP
yet).  It hasn't been merged into trunk.

Changing Twisted to support IPv6 is not that hard.  The hard part is
doing so without breaking backward compatibility or making public APIs
