Doesn't seem like it: :(


So, we can't run in the background, we can't really store things as 
files or in a RDBS.

We'd have to change things to support acting on HTTP requests only (or 
queued/cron:ed tasks) that must complete in 30 secs, plus we must 
support GAEs backing store, which is slightly different from what we use 

An interesting (but huge) challenge. Having support for GAE would be 
awesome, but we'd have to move a way from persistent TCP connections.

Also, we might not be able to run Twisted at all (as it's backend event 
handlers, the reactors, do low-level stuff that doesn't seem to be 
allowed) which would make a conversion rather invasive. (Unless there's 
similar solution (or twisted-backend) that would work on GAE...)
