Good, that makes it easier.

The data is composed of interactive text streams, Java types/classes
(representing mouse movements, etc) and binary data (jpg/png type data).
I can convert the  data to a "neutral" format (such as xdr) and build
communication data structures to encapsulate it if needed but if the
TwistedJava code does this already I'm that much further ahead. Keeping
the data streams in a Java native format "seems" like a good way to go
but the Python code will need to use the data as well and I'm not that
far along with what the difference between a Java String and Python
String (repeat this for each Java native type) are.
