  Sure, there is no problem distributed Twisted with another project.  I
think that, even if Twisted did depend on C extensions (which, as you
pointed out, it does not), it could be distributed with an application which
depended on it.

  Do I know of any projects that do this?  Hmmm.  Not really... I can think
of one that gives you the option to download an install Twisted
(automatically) during its own installation process, but that's all.
