Yes, PB (de)serialization seems to be where I get responsiveness burps 
too.  I can split up large processing chunks of my own (probably along 
the line of JP's Cooperator), but I don't see how to readily do that to 
delays that are internal to Twisted, without maintaining my own version 
or shunting all networking into a seperate thread (which I'm loath to do).
