FYI, this totally fails on Windows XP, Py2.6, Twisted 9.0.0...

[command line oputput]
(venv) C:\Documents and Settings\hornk\Desktop\twisted_venv_test\venv>easy_install Twisted
Searching for Twisted
Best match: Twisted 9.0.0
Processing Twisted-9.0.0.win32-py2.6.exe
error: c:\docume~1\hornk\locals~1\temp\easy_install-ftwcae\Twisted-9.0.0.win32-py2.6.exe is not a valid distutils Windows .exe
[end command line output]

Am I missing something or should I file a ticket for this?

You could try virtualenv:

And have one virtual environment with Twisted 9.0 and another with
Twisted 8.2, etc, etc.
