[Twisted-Python] How to detect when there is nothing waiting in the event queue

Hi, we've been using Twisted in an internal project for the past 4
months. It's a system that polls for events from a web source (looping
call) and also accepts connections via perspective broker. Each of these
events is turned into a series of Deferreds that run various tasks. Some
of these tasks are long-running and can take several hours to complete.
Because of this, it's very difficult to restart the server when we roll
out a new release.
I've added a signal handler to catch SIGHUP and call stop() on the
looping call and stopListening() on the perspective broker Root. How can
I detect when all remaining Deferreds have fired so I can stop the
reactor safely, without stranding any running processes?
