You're welcome :).

The reason that we did so is because your run-time patch requires 
talking to the reactor over private interfaces.  Normally this sort of 
thing can be overlooked in Python, but there are actually multiple 
implementations of the reactor, some of which may not work with those 
changes.  So a more efficient implementation of callLater(0,...) will 
allow your code to be compatible with Twisted and not just happen to 
work on the default reactor :).
