Yeah, initial setup is a pain compared to say Pylons. Especially when I
know I'm skimping on setting up the twistd service stuff at the beginning
when I probably ought to. The thought keeps going through my head "Why
don't you write a bastard hybrid of paster for twisted?" Anybody else hear
that dark and ominous voice?
