[Twisted-Python] Fork/Spawn children to accept connections on the same port.

I am trying to get the highest level of performance using all of the  
processors cores on a server.

In the past, a unix app would bind/listen to a socket and then fork or  
spawn children to accept connections on that socket. I can’t see how  
to do that in Twisted. Can someone point me in the right direction?

The solution of using a single process to accept connections and then  
farm out work to child processes, while a workable solution, isn’t at  
the same level of performance as children processes that are doing  
their own accepts.
