Well, assuming the parts you adapted from 1.3.0 haven't changed much
since, you could just take the changes between 1.3.0 and SVN HEAD, and
say you adapted the code from the MIT-licensed source.

If you had to copy a _lot_ of code from Twisted to your project, there's
a totally different problem from licensing. Copy-paste coding is evil,
and code duplication should be refactored out.
