Standard Twisted Feature Request Answer:

Basically, no one has written one yet. Unfortanutely, we don't have the
time to write every single a thing a distributed system might need, this
being an open source project. So when someone eventually needs one, it
will get written. Probably by them (i.e. by you?) although you could
also pay someone to implement it. Otherwise you could just wait until
one of the developers feels the need for a lookup service.

Oh, and I'd love if it could use zeroconf in addition to a PB based
lookup mechanism.
