Hmmm- well I'm just getting started here as well- but
yeah, I don't remember any mentioned way of
selectively removing state information for objects.
I don't like the whole state-saving stuff at all- I'm
doing atomic DB stuff, so my "state" above all is
maintained on the DB itself.
The Twisted clients are just basically dumb
transaction handlers.

Hmmm- would a simple solution be to simply
re-initialize the connection(s) upon any restart?
(can a restart even be detected with .app?)
