I can understand the challenge. Maybe a simple solution (more than acceptable 
for an end user like me) is creating a section on the main Twisted page with a 
list of common packages that work with Twisted but cannot be installed via pip 
or easy_install?

We understand PyPy's limitations in regards to C extensions, so as long as it is 
clearly documented somewhere that for running Twisted we need to install it via 
a separate Python interpreter and then modify the PyPy PYTHONPATH I think that 
is an acceptable workaround.
