  logrotate should rotate twistd logfiles just fine.  It shuts down a process, moves its log files around, then restarts it.

  Why you'd _want_ to rotate them this way, instead of just letting them automatically be rotated by twistd (which they will be), I dunno.  Is there some feature logrotate has that twistd lacks that you're interested in?
