Does anyone know if there is a way to get setup.py to automatically modify
.bat files? I have no idea what needs to be done on windows.. if anyone gives
me a patch, I'll apply it.

Hm, I was wondering if/when they'd change that. I've created bug SF#1648333
as a reminder that this part needs updating. I think that we'll need to
either check twisted's version string, or have some sort of try/except block
that sees if twistd.py is sufficient (i.e. twisted-2.5.0), or if we must
import _twistd.py (i.e. twisted-2.4.0 or earlier). If you've got a patch for
this, could you add it to that bug report?
