class Foo:
    def doStuff(self):

You have to have the request.

session = request.getSession()
session.foo = Foo()

Now later in your application you can do:

foo = session.foo

If you use the twisted web server for more than one logical
application you should probably do something like this.

class MyApplicationSession:

session = request.getSession()

session.sessions = {}

session.sessions[MyApplicationSession] = MyApplicationSession()

And something similar but another class for other applications.
