In case any other twisted newbies are interested in learning to apply 
twisted in a similar manner, I am sharing a link I found the other day:

Though this example doesn't use twisted.application or the plug-in 
method (both of which I am exploring, and will use), it's code has 
given me ideas on how to proceed. It's simplicity and conceptual 
similarity to what I am doing is just what I needed :-)
