Have you tried using cProfile to see where the time is going? I did 
this many years ago now with twisted when I first moved 
pythondirector across from asyncore to twisted, and found a couple 
of easily-fixed performance problems. It's quite possible you'll 
see a couple of easily-fixed optimisation targets if you profile 
the code.
