You can specify keyword arguments to Application's constructor.
a = Application(uid=1001, gid=1001)
Then, call either the setUID or setEUID method of your Application
instance. You will need to call bindPorts before calling these

Can you detail what about twistd is incompatible with your system

chances are you are going to find that you require more and more
features from twistd and re-implement it one feature at a time.
We provide the ability to run Twisted without twistd for simplicity's
sake and for certain special cases, but this is really not recommended.
Twisted is a framework, not a library, and should be used as one
