As I *think* it hasn't appeared in comp.lang.python, I reproduce here
remarks by the Groupkit author in (no longer) private e-mail:

  Twisted offers more of a low-level equivalent to the
  event-driven IO that comes standard in Tcl, plus many
  higher level network protocols on top of that.  It
  doesn't offer a focus on groupware application level
  constructs like session management, awareness, etc.,
  nor am I aware of anything in Python that tries to
  tackle this niche.  If someone were wanting to move
  GroupKit-like features to Python, twisted would be the
  best framework to build upon, but as is, it's missing
  things you'd probably like from GroupKit.
