I assume you're talking about Tulip.  I expect that Twisted will support
interoperating with other Tulip-based code, probably through the addition
of a new reactor type.  At that point, Buildbot will as well.

Twisted is much, much more than a framework for asychronous programming.
It includes substantial protocol support as well as a lot of software
infrastructure utilities.  So in no way could it replace Twisted.

I'm curious why you're asking?
