Just curious: what *benefits* do we obtain from using twisted 8.0?
It's nice that today, all of ipython1's depenedencies are satisfied
out of the box on current linux distros.  But even the
not-yet-released ubuntu has twisted 8, they are still on 2.5:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/python-twisted-core

I'm not fundamentally opposed to requiring 8.0 if we actually need it,
but otherwise I'd prefer to find a way (if possible, I haven't looked
at the code) to work with both 2.5 and 8.0. I hope the twisted devs
didn't make so many backwards incompatible changes as to make that
impossible...

Cheers,
