Nope.  Unequivocally, a bad idea.  The function you mentioned (whose name I will not repeat, even to quote) is SEVERELY deprecated.  Don't use it.

The poster sounds new to Twisted, which means that they have at least 2 years worth of regular asynchronous programming ahead of them before they can make effective and judicious use of shortcuts like deferredGenerator.
