[Twisted-Python] Twisted Hosting and Twisted in the Cloud

Cloud support would be nice.  I have a twisted app(a web service to
implement a game server for Second Life) that is likely to have a rough
scaling curve with bursty usage.  Atm I'm running it on a dedicated virtual
box with plans to go to EC2 and then multiple EC2s, but a single cloud
instance would be better. I've already got a decoupled permanent datastore
which interfaces to SDB for a cloud should work from that angle too.

What would twisted look like on a cloud?  Would the main reactor still be
single threaded with threads being distributed or would we have to
rearchitect for multiple main reactors by port or path?
