Have a look at the tap code in the mail/tap.py for mail.  Other tap 
files are in the tap/ directory of twisted.  That's how I figured out 
how to use the gtk manhole without using taps.

If anyone has spare time, making the adding/removing of servers simpler 
from code without using taps would be nice :)  Maybe a functional api 
which matches the tap utility?
