I tried that some time ago:


The problem is that it diverges from the Debian packaging of Twisted,
which has a source package for every subprojects, whereas the recipe
system only works with one source.

The other problem is that the "current" Twisted package (eg the one in
Natty) uses dh_python2, which is not available on Lucid.

At any rate, I'd be happy to help.
