[Twisted-Python] Twisted-friendly Message bus

I do it using "named singleton" classes and callbacks. Anyone that wants
to share the queue merely asks for the class to be instantiated. There
are 3 methods - registerCallback, removeCallback and sendEvent. Whatever
arguments, short of a few, are passed to the callback routines. It is
simple and has worked for me.

I have thought about doing something more sophisticated so the message
bus can extend to other machines, but I haven't done that yet.
