I guess I should have said "supported", since clearly Python allows it :).

This is fine - depending very heavily what you mean by "reaching out to the one reactor".  Are they doing this reaching out via callFromThread (or something that calls it, like blockingCallFromThread)?  That is OK.  Calling reactor APIs (like connectTCP, or listenTCP, or callLater) from your Django thread will break.
