Thanks for the reply.

So, if the docs tell us that this way is the way to use twisted, and they're
wrong, where do we go to learn how to use twisted?

The docs are quite clear about using application objects and making your
code into a twisted 'plugin' rather than simply poking at the reactor (as in
some of the quick-n-dirty tutorials).

I can certainly write my own persistence code, but I'm a little worried that
more of the "best practices" presented by the docs are wrong. Should I still
use twistd? Should I use the application object? Etc.

Shorter (and somewhat snippier): how do we use twisted in our projects, if
the docs are wrong?

I know that you personally aren't responsible to answer this question; I'm
hoping some others might pipe in and point me to some other docs or other
