You guys need to get your story straight.  radix and moshez both told me
unequivocally on IRC that as a twisted.web beginner I should
*definitely* be using RPYs, in fact that all twisted.web development
should be done using RPY until the app was ready to be packaged and

... and moshez barfed up a kidney when I said I was doing listenTCP
manually, saying that listenTCP was about to be deprecated with extreme
prejudice and should be avoided.  No real reason given other than "it's
a bad idea".
