[Twisted-Python] Named Pipes

Hi, is there a way to get twisted to listen to a named pipe like it's a 
TCP connection or something? How would I go about it?

What I wanted goes like this, there's a named piped, and syslog or other 
programs can send one line alerts (or multiline as well), and my app is 
supposed to do something with this data while attending to other stuff 
as well. We have a perl program that does this using select(), and I bet 
this can be done with twisted. But I don't see a named pipe 
implementation in the twisted docs. I'm sure there's a way.
