I don't think anyone's discouraging twistd plugins. They're nice for
what they do. You may be thinking of mktap plugins. mktap is

If this is a command line non-daemon application, then you're right.
twistd is not really geared towards those. There are some vague ideas

pretty reasonable. Some of them are probably just documentation bugs.
