I wanted to mention a project that I've been hacking that I think fits
the bill of what you are looking for.  Here is my current description of
what it is: " A very complete example of how to a create a realtime
web application using Django + Orbited + Twisted."

Currently the code is a glorified example (it nearly could be called a
'complete app')
and that is: "Realtime Voting Both - Realtime Voting, Chatting, and
Editing Polls."

The code is here:

and it is basically a "larger, more complete example" than the one I
did some months
ago, described here (you (Steve) have made a couple very helpful
comments there so I
know that you know of it's existence):

So, in the spirit of "release early and iterate", I invite you to go
play with it: http://github.com/clemesha/hotdot
It has some really cool parts (Django running from twisted.web.wsgi,
Orbited as a Twisted Service, authentication
using Twisted Cred+Django models, filtering/modification/logging of
in-transit Orbited messages, etc) but it is
also 'not done' and has some remaining 'crufty parts' (which others
might have great ideas on how to improve on :-).
I plan to continue to improve on it, and fairly soon I'll do a formal
write-up/blog-post on the whole thing, but for
now any feedback is appreciated.
