No, but from the traceback, it seems fairly clear that the plugin system
is trying to write a plugin cache file into your py2exe-created zip file
of Python source.  This won't work, of course.  You could try making sure
the cache file is up to date and including it in the zip file, but I have
no idea if this will actually produce sensible behavior.  The other
possibility is to actually teach the plugin system about zip files (ie,
contribute a patch to Twisted to support this case).
