I just found something interesting too -- I just took a quick peek at
feedparser, and the parse function looks like it fetches the page
synchronously using urllib.  That's *not* a good thing to do from inside
Twisted's main loop.  It looks like you want your parseFeed method to call:

    r = FeedParser(baseuri)

like feedparser.parse does internally.  (You'll need to do a little bit of
work to return the same sort dictionary that parse constructs for you).
