  Man, we really messed this up :)  The coil stuff should have been removed,
but a few nasty things slipped by and got into the release. 
twisted.names.dns no longer exists; one solution is to remove all the code
referring to it from various locations, mainly plugins.tml.  As Moshe
pointed out in his response, though, coil is somewhat defunct :)   You
probably won't be able to do much useful with it even once it works.

  I can't load www.moshez.org at the moment (dunno why) but, if I'm not
mistaken, there's a link to Moshe's twisted-web, which is some sort of t.web
configurator, and may be more along the lines of what you're looking for. 
Perhaps he can elaborate on it a bit.
