  twisted.python.plugin.getPlugIns *should* do caching, but I'm not up to
working out just how that should work; the threaded hack was committed in a
moment of laziness (and it is now in my code instead of twisted, even though
it is probably "correct" ;)  I could also see some neat ways to break it up
w/ a generator and have it called piecewise... mmh, but threading works for
me for the moment; maybe some other time.
