Yep - reactor.addReader and reactor.addWriter let you register file
descriptors; typically the object you register would be an instance of a
subclass of twisted.internet.abstract.FileDescriptor.
Well designed C APIs will expose the underlying parsing code in addition
to a TCP-specific implementation, and it'd be better to wrap this.
