the dispatcher class is never used on its own; it's a base class for 
user-defined communication classes.

asyncore users don't think in terms of instances of a single dispatch 
class; they think in terms of their own communication classes, which 
inherit from asyncore.dispatch or some subclass thereof.

using a single handler name for all subclasses doesn't strike me as 
especially useful.
