Take look at twisted.internet.stdio.StandardIO.
I'm new to this twisted stuff, so no doubt I've gotten this a bit
But, the act of listening is primarily about waiting for a new
connection etc.; since standard io is already connected it doesn't
quite make sense to listen for it.
When a listener L awakens for a new connection it cobbles together the
plumbing necessary to manage the connection. That plumbing will
invoke the methods of an object C responsible for handling the
connection. The listener L creates the object P, one for each
connection, by via the factory object F it was given when L was
created. It is the responsibility of C to implement protocol
appropriate to the connection.
What twisted.internet.stdio.StandardIO provides is a very simple
protocol for standard IO.
