The original tap concept was for applications to store configuration in  
the tap. Then,
such apps could be reconfigured by COIL to do all sorts of wacky things  
(go way back
on the mailing list archives to read about COIL).

The implementation of COIL never panned out, and I doubt it ever will.

In any case, you certainly don't need tap's to enjoy the benefits of  
twistd.  twistd's
-y and related switches should be of interest to you.

So, probably, there's not any good reason for you to spend any more time  
on tap's.
