Isn't it possible to use asynchronous communication to talk to the SQL
server as well?

I don't know a lot about Twisted, but I'd think you could create some
sort of connection with the SQL server and have TwistedMatrix manage
and react to the SQL server events the same as it does with your
clients.  Being that SQL is so common, I bet someone's already written
higher-level protocol handlers.
