twisted.internet.test.reactormixins says:

    CFReactor uses APIs which manipulate global state, so it's not safe
    to run its own reactor-builder tests under itself.

We also don't have a buildslave running under cfreactor. Which means 
it's currently completely untested. I filed a ticket to fix that - 

That still leaves the problem with global state though. Since we want to 
move towards having tests create new reactors, that's problematic. What 
global state does it manipulate, and what can we do about it?
