  Factory.startFactory() is a better place for it (and stopping the loop in Factory.stopFactory() is appropriate as well).

  __init__ is called when the Application is instantiated.  start* is called when the application is run.  stop* is called when the application is stopped.

  With a tac file, instantiation occurs at almost exactly when run does.  With other forms of application configuration, this may not be true.
