Here's a bright idea.  On the 3.0 release page, include a box listing
which major third-party apps have been converted.  Update it
once every couple of weeks.  That way, we're not explicitly
discouraging adoption of 3.0, we're just listing what support is
then currently available (if you need twisted and its not on the list,
then that would be your guide).
