To clarify what I think is a miscommunication:

When a Twisted developers says something like "KQueue doesn't work" what
that means specifically is that:

    trial --reactor=kqueue twisted

results in some test failures.  It may indeed seem to work for your
application, and it may even *actually* work for your application, but
the way we know if it is working or not is whether it can pass the full
test suite.  We need this so we can judge whether changes are introducing
regressions or not.
