yeah I have done all that, and more, the problem is there are no
non-trival examples that give much direction on what components to use
when . . .

the finger server example is overly contrived, and other source I have
found is overly complex . . .

I am porting a game server written in Java to Twisted, problem is
where to put the objects in the layers, what to use when is just very
un-clear from the example code and tutorials I have found.
