Ah. Well, coil could be turned into a python module, together with a shell 
script/.bat that uses twistd to run it. Once you do the promised event loop 
refactor, that is. :)

What module organization should that be? Tv suggested 
twisted.internet.eventloops.{gtk, select, poll, ...}

The current system is icky. ingtkernet is *such* a bad name, and the others 
aren't any better.
