Using "setup.py build" should not affect anything outside of your source
directory: it should create a Twisted .egg and store/use it in the
support/lib subdir of your Tahoe source checkout. Tahoe should be the
only thing that sees the new Twisted.
In contrast, I suspect that "setup.py install" *would* install all the
dependencies (as well as Tahoe itself) onto your system.
In general, just don't run anything as root, and you should be ok.
