Glad you asked! Twisted and circuits aren't really
that similar - they have very different architectures/designs.
circuits is simpler :)

They are similar only in that they are both event/asynchronous
frameworks. circuits also has asynchronous/non-blocking
sockets (TCPServer, TCPClient, UDPServer and UDPClient)
as well as simple implementations of EchoServer, Telnet
and others. There are also implementations of the HTTP
and IRC protocols (all following the component design).

With respect to Kamaelia, I have read about this and looged
over their material briefly. I can only say one thing. circuits
and Kamaelia share nothing in common really. Kamaelia
claims to be of a Component design/architecture - but to
be frank it's overly complicated - and I'd hate to write
systems like that :)

cheers
James
