OMG! That answer one half of my question, thanks. Should of probe around

So do you mean that twisted is the one sending out bytes to and from the 
network, and pass dataReceived to the library?

This depends if the library has the encode and decode routines right? If 
the library does it's own networking, then I cannot do it this way, am I 
right in saying that?
