Do you mean Perspective Broker, or the networking base? In either case
there may very well be existing packages that do similar things
(http://mues.faeriemud.org/ sounds similar, for example). 

If not, wouldn't it just be easier to use the existing Twisted codebase
written in Python, seeing as it's so close to Ruby? I get the impression
that for Ruby programmers using Python wouldn't be an extreme hardship.
