There is some experimental support for using Twisted as a WSGI container.
Zope is using it, with some success as far as I am aware.  If you use WSGI,
however, you lose pretty much all the Twisted request processing features.

It is pretty unlikely that Twisted will work inside mod_python, and there
wouldn't be any reason to use it there anyway, since you already have an
HTTP server.

I haven't used Django so I can't say whether or not it will work well in a
Twisted server.  If it performs blocking operations (for example, to talk
to a database), then it probably won't work very well.
