Twisted and WSGI are not mutually exclusive.  If our app is a WSGI
container, what serves it doesn't matter.  We could use paste's WSGI
server, or Twisted's, or the one in the python standard library, or
mod_wsgi in Apache.  It really doesn't matter.

WSGI is the accepted standard for Python web apps, and I think there's
benefit there.  Wikkid's current use of Twisted isn't using the WSGI
stuff.  All I assert is that it should.  I was using Paste merely as
what serves the WSGI container, but I'm sure that once I have a WSGI
implementation, we can switch to Twisted's WSGI server relatively
