And I still dont get it, am I supposed to use twisted as a base class
for my app, derive a class for my comunication or what?

Every thing seems to link on to something else, deffereds, it's own web
servewr etc, it seems like it's a joke, or if not then certianly
overkill for sending data over sockets.

Yet at the same time it seems to say "This is what you need Rob, Twisted
it is"

So do where do I start a GUI app, with pygtk and import some object
based on a factory/reactor setup?  And what is the point of tap's?  why
not just run the python code as I would any other code?  why would I
want to change reactors at startup?

It just seems to defy logic, where as useing pythonx xml-rpc or the
spread module is simple and obvious,
