At the very least, the function there needs tests, documentation, and a use-case for some code that is going to want to call it from within Twisted - and I don't think there is any currently.

There are probably a few things that are painful to do without such a function, but in general this sort of thing is just a recipie for deadlocks and running out of threads in your pool, so I am not inclined to push it forward.
