That surely is possible. How much you need to rewrite it impossible to
answer without knowing your code. You don't "talk" to Zope the same
way you "talk" to Twisted, for example.

No, you will have to take your objects out of twisted and put them in Zope.

If your objects are tightly integrated with Twisted, you are likely
better off keeping the servers separate applications, but make them
talk to each other. Chris recommendation of WSGI makes sense.
