This is exactly what I was looking for, thanks Andrew!



P.S. Thanks also for your previous hint on restricting the web
server to single connections.

A key part is the 'struct' module in Python's standard library, which can
convert bytes to numbers, and so forth.  Take a look at the source to
twisted.protocols.basic.Int32Receiver, which receives strings prefixed by a
32-bit length.  There's really nothing to it :)
