Maybe this is a good time to consider setuptools support? Entry points are the external plug-in API that everyone else uses. Also, the fact that Twisted can't be listed as a dependency in any setuptools-using projects due to its non-standard setup.py is one huge pain in the ass.
it was considered, and there were no objections (and many people who would like it): http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/1533
That ticket doesn't seem to refer to setuptools at all, just distutils. I certainly haven't seen a discussion of removing twisted.plugin and switching to entry points.
someone just has to actually implement it. I'd like to sprint on this Friday (At Rochester DevHouse, http://xkfm.com/wiki) assuming the buildslave is up by then.
I'm completely mac-ignorant, how is our installation on that platform?
Same as any other *nix.
... except for the parts that aren't :). You can find some packages for different styles of Mac installation at http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/Packages#MacOSX
