I would definitely be interested in pre-installed Twisted servers and
Virtual hosts. I currently use Twisted for serving dynamic web content, data
capturing and chat services. Webfaction is a great hosting company and they
have twisted support, albeit rather limited.

I would think that if Divmod where to offer this service, you would find
many a happy and eager python developer using your service.
