While attempting to help someone to install buildbot on a machine not 
completely under my control, I used 'python setup.py bdist_rpm' to

Clearly the RPM does not assert any dependency on Twisted, and Twisted 
is missing, so I have a broken installation of Buildbot.

Is there any way that the RPM generated by setup.py could be hardwired 
with this dependency? It would make remote installations of Buildbot a 
little bit more foolproof. On FC5, the required dependent package is
