I know - vaguely - about twisted and I have been dancing around the fire, not 
really ready to put the time in to understand it properly.   Looks like the 
time has come though - my weekend is really going to hell.

I am now going to make a loopback connector and start playing.

Thanks to everybody for the feedback.
