Server receives data from client -> server sends POST to another server.
Server receives response from another server -> server sends message
back to client and closes connection.

Server sending POST would probably use twisted.web.client and be a
single function call, but internally be:
Open connection to another server.
Connection made -> send HTTP request.
HTTP response receoved -> do something.

Receiving data is:
Received data -> check if we've received enough to process protocol
message, if so process message, otherwise buffer data.
