It's not an option to write part of the application in C++ and part in Python?

Qt is the closest thing I've seen, in the sense that it offers an asynchronous 
API for networking. In the signal-slot mechanism for callbacks, you connect 
two objects semi-permanently, unlike a Deferred which is used just once. If 
the way you handle events is mostly static, it is not a problem.

Qt is modular since 4.0, so you could use the network part without the GUI 
part. But unlike Twisted, it doesn't come with implementations for all 
popular network protocols. For the client side, KIO from KDE supports many 
protocols, for the server side you'd probably have to write it yourself.
