Twisted looks very nice and I hope it will receive built-in module
status someday, but last time I tried to use Twisted I could not find
a document I did like with an introduction for programmers.  Like a
tutorial demonstration how to program a little example application
using a specific protocol.  There *is* plenty documentation about
various subjects (for example the \howto directory) but I did find it
very difficult to find what I need from that.
Maybe you could add a simple example application **for each protocol**
before you release 1.0?  It could simply be a matter of copy-and-paste
from the existing documentation and adding a few example applications.
 With such a 'cookbook' added I am sure Twisted will be appreciated
much more and used more by programmers who want to try it out.  Good
luck with your project.

The greatest griefs are those we cause ourselves.
