Why would you want multiple reactors? The only reason would be to have
one per CPU core. For that the simplest thing would be to manually
start n twistd processes, one per core and have a reverse proxy
process listening on a port and distributing connections to each
twistd process. Of course, you can extend this architecture to
multiple machines.
