probably not... maybe. Medusa is older, and more stable, but Twisted has
been refactored again and again, so is more refined, and probably better

It is a collection of pure python modules.

I suspect that the reason you are having problems with Twisted is it's
exensive support for different event-loops... probably some of which are
C extension modules (guessing here). 

If that is the case, then you might have more luck with medusa. However,
migrating Twisted code to medusa would not be that easy, as they are
fairly different. Twisted is much better supported these days, so you
might as well try and resolve the issues you are having with it through
the Twisted lists etc. I would also deal with the Py2exe people...
