If this is actually affecting your UI this may mean the batch size you
are processing in each call is too big. E.g. if it takes 50ms per call,
you're not going to get more than 20FPS if you run one call per

Something like twisted.internet.task.coiterate might help, but you still
need to make sure each chunk (or rather, size of chunk*num parallel
processes) is sufficiently small.
