[Twisted-Python] To twisted.web beginners: don't use RPYs

I have the same experience. Making RPYs and running them using twistd has
been hyped as the right and *only* way to correctly develop web-apps in
Twisted. My current solutions is subclassing Resource and listenTCP etc. and
the thing works great.

Hopefully this is just misunderstandings and the documentation will be
updated to show us the perfect way to Twisted-enlightenment ;-)

Anyway, twisted is cool.
