For what it's worth, I completely agree. If someone has, or someone ever does, implement a nice async file I/O system, a nice abstract API for Twisted to do it would allow us to swap in such a thing and get a performance boost without anyone changing their code.
As Itamar says though, a Fount would be an ideal way to present this once I merge the Tubes branch. (It'll be up for review any day now, thanks to all the help I got at PyCon...)
