[Twisted-Python] Opening a fifo

I've run into a small problem where my twisted application needs to  
open a fifo to talk to another process. On Linux at least, the open  
blocks until the other end of the fifo is opened and this is blocking  
my reactor.

Is there a straight-forward mechanism to asynchronously open the fifo?  
Or will I have to do something with threads?
