Not really related.  What they're doing is more of a design pattern ala 
JavaBeans to create interface definitions using method signatures which can 
be recognized using introspection.  It's entirely orthogonal to what 
TransWarp does, since for example you could create specs in TransWarp that 
created classes which do what Twisted looks for.  Twisted, AFAICT, does not 
let you seperately code different aspects of an entire class hierarchy and 
weave them together to create a new class hierarchy.  From the docs, it's 
really just a way of specifying certain types of interfaces/metadata 
without using a separate Interface object, or function attributes.
