Hi, I'm using twistd to run my server as a daemon (by "twistd -y
Below is a sample of my code:

class MyService(internet.SSLServer):

application = service.Application("MyApp")
myService = MyService()

Now, app.py needs a passphrase to read its SSL key and I wish to prompt
the user to enter such passphrase. I tried getpass() but it doesn't work
because /dev/stdin is already redirected to /dev/null.
How can I ask for a passphrase using twistd?
