Very nice.  Overall I think that the structure of the project looks
good, especially the
clean usage of Twisted's Application functionality.

You mention "don't spread bad practices", and I think this brings up
an important
issue.  It would be nice to have some of the main Twisted devs put a
"best practices"
stamp of approval on the code, and after putting on that stamp,
clearly link to the code.
This is something that would be good for the Twisted community and
newcomers alike.
