That's really sad. How about "Twisted Web performance benchmarks" ? Perhaps
you're spending too much time reading slashdot...

Twisted, Twisted Web and Nevow are 3 totally different products. What do you
want to benchmark and compare?

What is a "general" task?

Use 2 machines and ab (apachebench) utility from apache package. I am pretty
sure, that in some conditions you could come out with suprising results.

Check out http://www.eecs.harvard.edu/~mdw/proj/seda/ site, for example - as
they claim to be event-driven architecture in Java, which outperforms
Apache, I suppose they did some benchmarks.

I don't think, that topic like 'generating dynamic pages' is compareable
between languages until you come up with a strict definition of that page.
