This discussion is starting to remind me of something that's been in the
Twisted sandbox for quite a while:

The code isn't exactly clear, but the example in the if __name__ ==
'__main__' block at the bottom should give you some idea of what it can
do... I can't escape the feeling that this discussion is slowly reinventing

I'm not sure I'd really like to read code that uses some of the more
outlandish proposals in this thread... it looks like a good way to write
convoluted code.
