(I'm cc-ing the twisted list, since that's the place where questions should

ClientCreator is just an easier way to connection client protocols, without
having to make your own Factory.

You have to use the reactor; that's how the TCP data gets to your client.
I'm not sure what "I don't want it to loop" means, but you can always stop
the reactor after you're done with whatever networking you're doing.

You don't need to have a callback for sendMessage.  Just don't pass the
wantAck kwarg to the method, and you won't get a Deferred back.
