Maybe we can also mention the new email auth example and the 
spawnProcess optimization?  Or a few other issues that seem interesting. 
The Deferred changes are cool, but only having two highlights for the 
release seems weak.

I did a user install (without setuptools) on Ubuntu 9.10.  Some 

  * #4503 was misclassified as a core bug, but it's a words bug.
  * There are still .doc files in the topfiles directories
  * There are two trial test failures, apparently the ones fixed by #4608
  * The topfiles directories all get installed
  * twisted/web/test/test_util.py appears to be missing

Aside from the two trial failures the test suite passes.  I'm installing 
this on my mail server now, I'll post again if I run into any troubles
