In my PyCon 2008 talk, "Adventures," I have one slide
that categorises Protocols, Deferreds, Callbacks, and
the Reactor. I think those are the key components of
Twisted. For greater completeness, I would add
(protocol) factories.

I guess a type or set theorist would want to know what
sort of operations one performs upon objects of these

I have another slide that describes Twisted's control
flow (from what I can tell). There I get into the
MainLoop and reader/writer sets (there are a few more
entries there). Unfortunately I haven't gotten around
to properly labelling stuff there on the slide.
