It's not just build-time.

Once you've installed Twisted in a particular environment, trial helps you determine if it's *installed* properly.  If chunks have fallen off of your tarball at some point, trial will alert you to this by failing a bunch of tests.  It's that dependency which keeps me leaning towards "yes".

That said, I'm still undecided - trial is definitely making a lot of progress lately and the rationale of the split was to keep projects like this unconstrained by core's need for stability.
