The pure Python TCPServer and UDPServer classes have a class variable
"allow_reuse_address".  Set to "True" will allow quick re-binding.  It
needs to be set before any server instances are created.  For example
I use this bit of code in some non-Twisted XML-RPC server code:

from SimpleXMLRPCServer import *
SimpleXMLRPCServer.allow_reuse_address = True

However, I don't know if your Twisted based server ultimately inherits
from one of these classes.
