 I don't know anything about Twisted, but you'd usually want to install
a signal handler for SIGTERM, and perhaps SIGINT (unless you handle
KeyboardInterrupt exceptions) and SIGHUP (for when the controlling
terminal is lost, which usually causes a process to quit)

I'm assuming you're using a UNIX-like system
