Can't promise anything.  twill stuff has been at the mid-level TODO in
my inbox for the last 3 months.

I think this needs to be a FAQ...

 - easy_install doesn't work for a significant group of people and I like
   twill to Just Work

 - mechanize occasionally breaks stuff in twill (not mechanize's fault,
   necessarily, just a fact of life from monkeypatching)

 - if you have the expertise to explain that I should be using setuptools
   you have the expertise to upgrade mechanize-in-twill and run the tests
   yourself ;)
