I'm curious what would happen if two separate reactor callLater() methods
were executed on two separate functions (we'll call them a() and b()) ...
such that a() and b() would be scheduled to run at the same exact moment.
How would Twisted handled such a situation? Is there such a thing as
callLater() "collision" even if the probability of such collission is quite
