If Python Mocker is failing to handle some case, it's somewhat likely 
that it's not a problem caused by Twisted or Trial, but a problem with 
Python Mocker or a problem with the way you're using it.  Twisted is 
just a Python library, all of the normal Python rules still apply.

I typically avoid mocking as a testing approach, preferring verified 
fakes due to their reduced maintenance overhead and the fewer 
metaprogramming tricks required to have them work.
