Twisted was going to be split up into separate packages at one point,
but they pretty much gave up on that idea and went back to
distributing it as a single monolithic package. I know that Debian had
the same problem -- that there was not a .egg-info file just named
"Twisted", and I believe they solved it by adding a package that
depends on the other Twisted-Foo packages and which provides a
Twisted.egg-info file.
