Okay... So I've got to somehow figure out how to launch the parent
Twisted instance with CREATE_NO_WINDOW (or DETACHED_PROCESS, or
whatever), then?

I'm using Hammond's pythonservice.exe, which was a side effect of using
this approach to installing and running the Windows service:


Also, I have access to the source code of the process I'm launching --
if I can't figure out how to solve this from the Twisted side, might I
be able to resolve it by modifying the process I'm launching?
