Very true.  In fact, Twisted comes to the rescue again here.  When I
needed to test Mailman's NNTP integration I could either spend several
weeks figuring out how to install and configure some traditional NNTP
server, or I could just install Twisted and run exactly three commands
(one of which was "sudo" :).

Although I'm doing a lot more dev on the Mac these days, I definitely
agree that this is what makes Gentoo so cool for Linux, and I can't wait
for Gentoo-on-OSX to switch to doing things the Right Way (can you say
bye-bye DarwinPorts?).
