Yes.  Even if the reasons cited in this thread are not 100% correct, the fact is that many thousands of Twisted servers that depend intimately on timed events are deployed, even on vmware-hosted virtual machine infrastructures, without experiencing difficulties related to #2424.

That said, it would be great if someone could implement a fix for that issue, as it's just one more thing that system operators need to be aware of and keep track of.  It would be really neat if you could totally screw up your timekeeping but have Twisted applications keep running reliably regardless.
