Did not notice this one, thank you. From the quick view, it seems like the 
whole service publishing part is not yet implemented. I never wrote any 
line of code "Twisted style", maybe this will be my first time. ;)

Actually, this is a REST webservice built upon twisted.web. Registering 
service using avahi requires async DBus connection and, effectively, 
gobject main loop. This does not seem to be good choice for service that is 
supposed to serve hundreds of requests per minute...
