Would be great of course to have it in Twisted.

In the meantime, I've packaged it up


Caveat: as attached to the ticket, there are some errs when running trial
which don't happen with select reactor.

Whether those are significant I can't tell .. if there is anything I can do to
clarify (like i.e. running on non-virtualized hardware FreeBSD) let me know.
