Right.  You need to take into account everything that is happening in the process.  Client connections you create, processes you spawn, _and_ incoming connections you accept.  The below lets you limit one of these factors.  A solution like the semaphore you posted (a version of which is in Twisted 2.0, btw, for those who aren't aware - twisted.internet.defer.DeferredSemaphore) would let you limit the others.
