Definitely. I guess this involves updating all the various twisted-X

If we want to update all twisted Ubuntu packages and not only the -core
one, I *think* we need a separate bug filed against each of them. A
quick answer on #ubuntu-devel should clear this out.

It looks like the only API removal that could raise compatibility issues

 - The deprecated connectUDP method of IReactorUDP has now been
   removed. (#4075)

I'm wondering if there's any code in Ubuntu packages relying on it.

Have you already asked Matthias Klose (the maintainer) if he is
interested in updating the packages himself? If not, I'll be glad to
help out.
