PythonD: 4Suite or Twisted?

Just a warning; when you mention "threaded" and "webserver" in this group in
the same sentence, you'll probably get several replies telling you that
threaded webservers scale badly and that you should look at ( you guessed
it ) Twisted or Medusa.

Twisted are slowly getting a proper documentation together and that would
make it a killer package for web/internet-based projects. It still seem a
bit bloated and some of the code is labeled unstable, yet the the package
seem to be marketed as complete and stable. I keep seeing things like "It
should really be re-written/re-factored " etc. in the twisted-mailing-list.
But all in all, as I said before, I think Twisted might be the new killer
app if the development-team keeps the development progress they seem to have
at the moment.

eh .... what was my point excactly ??? Hm ....
