I've got a job-queue process implemented twisted that interfaces with Postgres and occasionally downloads some urls
To handle the URLs, I'm using mechanize. I know that twisted.web1 has the client, but it seems to be not actively maintained, and there's no client in twisted.web2.
I'm not sure that there is much active maintenance to do. For what it's worth, I've called t.web.client.getPage() at least 10 million times, and i don't have any complaints.

My experience has been the same; I've used twisted.web.client for years now, in production applications, with no issues. That said, the original poster didn't mention any special requirements that forced him to go with mechanize; rather, the choice appears to have been made on the basis of activity.
That said, there *is* a web2-based client, available from OSAF, named zanshin. I haven't used it, but it is most certainly being actively developed.
