As others have advised well, twisted is really suitable candidate for
this. Here is bit of strategy for you if you were to develop your
first application using twisted (if the concept of reactors is new).

- Follow the twisted tutorial right from the finger example.
- At the point in the tutorial were your finger service is going to
  use xmlrpc, try 'fit-in' your requirements logic into that style.

- Once you have small outline of that style of program working for
  multiple parallel connections go head with making your program

If you would like to relish in understanding the concepts underlying
twisted, look at the documentation written by dave peticolas. They are
really good.
