I've started implementing a version of server.handle() which returns a Deferred that fires with the return value of the handle_ method on the server.  I'll be working on this in /branches/exarkun/callLater/, for anyone who is interested in following development, contributing patches, or making suggestions.

There's no code checked in at the moment, but since there seems to be interest I'll commit what I have so far later tonight.

Regarding the second topic, I'd really like to see a Nevow release too :)  I don't think there's anything critical blocking a 0.5 release right now aside from hopes that 0.5 would include a particular set of feature enhancements that aren't all complete yet.  I don't see any point delaying a release to wait for these: someday they'll be ready, and if Nevow releases are done regularly, then someday shortly afterwards, they'll be available in a release :)
