If you do, then I'll gladly spend a little bit of time to make it slightly
more idiomatic, i.e. use twisted.python.usage rather than getopt, and
probably make it work with twistd -y.

Actually, it may even be an idea to have both the "before" and "after" to
help demonstrate how easy it is to use twistd ;)
