Thomas, you're completely ON track here... I just wanted to emphasize that
Twisted is much more polished and sophisticated.  I'd even have to say, 
as a programmer using them, that Twisted does actually provide a simpler and 
cleaner API.  It and Medusa are much closer in concept than either is to
Zope, though, as you say.
