But of course, we'd never know, because we have no way to test that.

Apparently self.qApp.processEvents(delay) (what's used in doIteration) 
isn't processing network events. Thus reactor.iterate() doesn't work 
for anything network-related, and nearly every test fails.

Changing doIteration to:
     def doIteration(self, delay=0.0):
         log.msg(channel='system', event='iteration', reactor=self)
         self.callLater(delay, self.crash)

seems to help a lot. But it's still failing a bunch of tests. Perhaps 
this gives someone who wants to maintain qtreactor a head start at 
figuring out how to fix it the rest of the way.
