twisted.web isn't deprecated, and won't be until web2 is an adequate

Can you assume the server doesn't close the connection on you except  
on errors? If so, that should be okay.

I don't know which protocol you're talking about, but others like  
this I've seen which assign significance to a long-lived HTTP  
connection have also had the property that the connection doesn't get  
closed out from under the client after approx 30s of inactivity, like  
a normal HTTP server would.
