This example is misnamed -- it should be copy_receiver.tac.  "tac" stands
for "Twisted Application Configuration", and is run with "twistd -y".
twistd doesn't actually care what the file's extension is, so you can run it

    twistd -noy copy_receiver.py

(see the twistd(1) man page and the twisted.application howto:

I'll fix the docs to make this clearer.
