Given the twisted team's general attitude toward threaded programming, I
don't find that terribly surprising.  Kind of like what you get when you
elect government officials whose sincere program and belief is that
government can't work. ;)

- -0.  I would restate my belief that the twisted integration is
yet-to-be-proved in "production" use, and needs some care-and-feeding
from people whose pagers go off (or the equivalent) if it breaks.  I can
live with the default being twisted, but it is a bit like leaving
'debug-mode on' in the default config file for now.
