[Twisted-Python] LoopingCall vs internet.TimerService

Thanks for twisted - very useful. Now, my questions
I have written a server which accepts connections from clients, takes  
requests and adds them to a Queue (a python object of Queue.Queue).
Now i have two approaches

a) At startup, my server(a subclass of pb.Root)  runs a "dispatcher"  
function using task.LoopingCall(dispatcher).start(0.1)
b)Create a separate subclass of internet.TimerService whose function  
is dispatcher

[INFO: dispatcher has methods like obj.callRemote, addCallback and  

So which is better, neater, safer? loopingcall of timerservice? also  
is it safe to do the calls mentioned in INFO within dispatcher?

Thank you for your time and help.
