From my experience, twill is actively supported by Titus Brown. twill is 
based on mechanize, which is also actively supported by John J. Lee.

Help in using twill is regularly available on this list.

implement them for you. Even better, implement them and propose patches. 
(This is the open source model.)

It's very good for what it does. I'm quite happy with it. I haven't 
looked for other packages.
