>From what I understand of the two systems, Twisted's "web stuff" isn't
really intended as a "web application framework" (yet?) and you'd
probably want Nevow or Twisted.web2 for that anyway. Cyclone and
Tornado, OTOH, *are* Web frameworks. The advantage of Cyclone being
that it's based on the core Twisted async "stuff" rather than
Tornado's homebrew (and hence supports more things, has tests,
cross-platform support, etcetera).

Using Cyclone would also allow you to use txtorcon, as it's based on
Twisted too :)
