[Twisted-Python] service stops/twistd exits

I'm wondering if there is an established pattern for having an application
running in twistd shut itself down in the absence of a running service?
The idea is that if a service fails it calls self.stopService() and the
application shuts itself down somehow (rather than having the service call
reactor.stop). Ideally, I was hoping to do with without any specialized code
within my service, ie subclass from a ManagedService class or using
I supposed it's possible to write a monitoring service that checks to ensure
my service is running, but I'd prefer a tighter coupling like having a
FatalException bubble up from the failed service to the application,
MultiService, or whatever *should* be calling reactor.stop().
Otherwise, if having service (eventually) stop the reactor is totally
antithetical to how things should work in a twistd plugin, then I guess I'll
need to rethink things.
