This sounds wrong to me, instead of requiring the user to upgrade
twisted, you ask the user to use buggy twisted plus epsilon?

I actually don't care about who gains what, I care about the code and
easy of checkout/use. svn://svn.twistedmatrix.com vs svn://divmod.org,
the former looked the .com one without knowing the details.

So that's fine with me. I only need twisted and nevow and I don't
appreciate unnecessary dependencies, especially if they're related in
any way with missing twisted bugfixes ;)
