Just a little writeup..

Now have a pleasure of not starting django development webserver, nor using apache to do http-level tests in my project.

Thanks to twill and its wsgi integration.

Works smoothly now, but caused me little cursing when twill refused to see rss feed.

After digging the twill code I’ve changed a single line - still don’t know how correct is this:

Nevertheless it didn’t break anything and I have a luxury to test rss feeds too:
