It sounds like even if I were to do this, I could still run into
issues with the interleaving being untested. I'm personally using it
to interleave with pygame, which is a somewhat common usage. Does it
make more sense to write a pygame reactor which then trial can use?
(And then setup another buildslave, or at least get it on the reactor
buildslave) Would a TSR-only reactor have any purpose outside of
running trial and allowing us to narrow down what issues might be
causing platform-related bugs?
