1. Twisted is NOT THREAD SAFE. Code that talks to Twisted in any way
will break if run in a thread in parallel to the main reactor thread.
Use reactor.callFromThread to call Twisted code in the reactor thread
from other threads.
2. Twisted supports non-blocking DNS, see other posts.
3. If you *do* need to connect two Deferreds together, you might want to
look at twisted.internet.defer.maybeDeferred and Deferred.chainDeferred,
