In my experience, this is certainly _not_ the case. Currently, I'm
working on at least 2 projects where we use trial for running the test
suite, but the production code depends on nothing from twisted itself
except from deferreds, and those can be easily replaced by the
deferreds provided in the python-deferred library.

So, if you wanna take a look, the projects are:



(in the latter, there are 2 "web client" implementations, one uses the
web client from twisted, and the other uses libsoup. So, when running
the project on linux, you get an app that uses no twisted at all and
yet all the test suite is built on top of trial).

I'll be happy to give you more details, let me know!
Cheers, Natalia.
