Yay! Thanks, that's fixed. However, now testing the script with the 
fixes spots me another problem - formfile() in commands.py just does a 
plain open, where as to properly open non-text files on Windows requires 
open(filename,'rb') rather than just relying on a 'r'. According to the 
Python docs, this should also work fine for systems where they don't 
treat opening binary and text files differently. Without this fix, I get 
400 bytes loaded as opposed to the proper 44kb I'm trying to upload.

Also, doing

easy_install http://darcs.idyll.org/~t/projects/twill-latest.tar.gz

worked, but just using the line you suggested didn't, and just left me 
at v0.8.
