Have you seen

(In general, the best approach to Twistifying a protocol in another Python
library is to reuse the message decoding and encoding, but use Twisted to
handle all the networking.  This usually means writing a Protocol subclass
that delegates most of the work in dataReceived to the library, but
obivously this depends on the protocol...)
