Never mind - I didn't understand the concept of deferreds ;-). When
I read the code for FileSender, I thought it might be cool to have
something similar for the NetstringReceiver. But in the case of 
FileSender, the delivery of a file is explicitly triggered by the 

My vague idea was to create a method beginNetstringReception that 
returns a Deferred. But since Deferred instances are not reusable,
I'd have to call this method each time I wanted to receive a netstring, 
and this is obviously nonsense.
