I would consider Webware for Python very mature and stable, quite suitable
for any kind of production-level deployment. Personally, I'm trying out
CherryPy these days, and I love what I see -- but I have as yet no idea
about the stability, scalability, and so on. With Webware, you're going
for the most solid and proven solution. I don't see any advantage with
doing the presentation in PHP -- Webware supports excellent templating
(Cheetah), servlets, AND if you insist "embed Python in HTML" too, and you
can mix-and-match if you need to.

Twisted -- a great solution if you have the option of deploying a
self-sufficient server rather than having to run on top of Apache or
the like. I think Webware is easier to program at the application
level, and it gives you many more deployment options, but Twisted's
performance and scalability are nothing short of amazing -- and if
you need to add more and more protocols, not just HTTP, Twisted's
flexibility is gonna pay for itself.
