Sadly, neither Ubuntu nor Debian has Twisted 2.0 yet. I've been speaking
with the maintainer about including 2.0 in Ubuntu's Breezy development
branch, which would make it available for the next release in October.
Hoary users would have to stick with snapshots of SVN made before the
2.0 requirement.

It's good news that this problem has a fix, though.
