I strongly agree!  I know this is a non-issue for most people,
but just to reinforce the point:  zope.interface had one of the first
implementations of interfaces, represents a lot of good work, is
well supported, and is receptive to supporting twisted requirements
... and twisted developers already have more than enough on their
plates without having to maintain yet another component architecture
(beyond the extensions of zope.interface that are currently maintained
by twisted).

All those reasons more than justify the "annoyance", IMO.
