FWIW, I've been studying other event loops. It's interesting to see the similarities (and differences) between e.g. the tulip eventloop, pyftpd's ioloop, Tornado's IOLoop, and 0MQ's IOLoop. The latter two look very similar, except that 0MQ makes the poller pluggable, but generally there are lots of similarities between the structure of all four. Twisted, as usual, stands apart. :-)
AFAIK, the Twisted is the only framework from the listed ones which supports IOCP. This is probably the reason of why it's so different.
