Generally, yes, except for the "MainThreadWSGIResource" part.

First of all: you're taking your life in your own hands when you use a Twisted API that starts with a single underscore :-).  http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/CompatibilityPolicy

Second, _WSGIResponse _does_ run the response in a thread; your code isn't doing what it claims to be doing.  The right way to do this is not to override the WSGI layer, but to provide a fake threadpool whose 'callInThread' just calls the given callable on the main thread.

+1 for having a "plasmoids" module, by the way - does this software control a magnetically regulated plasma reaction at some point? :).
