Thanks -- fixed in CVS.

I'll let someone else more knowledgeable comment on this.

Obviously you can't have multiple things listening on port 7080.  Perhaps
this should raise an exception, though, so as to not seem like it can.

Here you've constructed two seperate server.Site instances, i.e. Twisted Web
HTTP servers, but what you want is one Twisted Web server that does multiple

I suspect you can probably do:

    from twisted.web.resource import Resource
    root = Resource()           # An empty resource
    site = server.Site(root)
    root.putChild('RPC2', XMLRPC_Calc())
    root.putChild('SOAP', SOAP_Calc())
    app.listenTCP(7080, site)
