Hi Jim,

   If you are happy to wait a few days more, before including these into 
buildbot, I will create a branch to get these tests back into the same zope 
testing framework. From what Andrew Bennetts said in his response, this is 
very possible but will probable require a update of Twisted to the trunk. But 
then we can do what we are doing now and just have svn:external pointing to a 
specific revision of the Twisted trunk.
