The ultimate example of using nevow is Quotient. Unfortunately, it's 
probably not the easiest to follow. To orient you should you decide to 
look at the code, all URLs are expressed in the form /me/123 where 123 
is the unique identifier of an object in a database. The database is 
'atop', an object database, so attempting to visit that page will load 
the corresponding object from the DB. Then, an IResource adapter is 
located for that object. So, you can look at any of the IResource 
adapters (registered in webcomponents.wsv) for examples of multiple 
Page types.

For some simpler examples, the apps which come to mind are Matt 
Goodall's pastebin, and Alex Levy's CMS (does it have a name?). Perhaps 
they could share some code or links.

As always, please drop by #twisted.web on irc.freenode.net and ask 
questions freely. There is a high likelihood that someone will be happy 
to answer your questions and have a technical discussion with you. If 
nobody answers immediately, idle for a couple of hours... someone 
should answer eventually :-)
