[Twisted-Python] Flush socket

For testing implementations of a TCP-based protocol, I am testing
if an implementation is agnostic wrt to in what chops in receives
octets from the wire ("stream clean").
To do that, I force out octets from the protocol test driver (written
in Twisted) in differently sized chops, down to single octets.
Currently, I am using reactor.doSelect(0) after a transport.write()
to force out outstanding octets to wire.
I know this should not be done like this, but is there a clean and
supported way to do that?
## FIXME: find suitable replacement for this code, which appears to
## sometimes ..
## From the web: "You should never call reactor.doSelect. This isn't
## reactors, and it could easily break the reactor by re-entering it
where it isn't
## expecting to be re-entered."
return False # socket has already gone away ..
