[tahoe-dev] barriers to using tahoe

What are the problems with making a fork of Twisted with the fix Tahoe needs
to implement FTP, then moving back to Twisted trunk once the required patch
is available there?

Is this even a possible option for making Tahoe FTP available immediately
without having to push off the Twisted patch onto users?
