I'd guess this is the number one stumbling block.  That said, most 
people come to Twisted *precisely because* they want asynchronous 
execution.  It's a hard problem, and any reasonably intelligent 
programmer quickly discovers that using Twisted is infinitely easier 
than trying to cobble together a custom solution.  There are more than 
enough learning resources available (online tutorials, the book, this 
list, a very helpful irc channel).   I suggest ignoring the "twisted is 
hard" crowd ... such people are probably looking for a simple(r) 
solution where none (currently) exists.
