There's nothing wrong with using python, its just Twisted that turned
out to be a bad decision. I'd wager that a daemon written in python
using language level threads would be rather smaller (in code size) and
likely more robust than one written in C. I don't really buy the
resource usage argument as a python interpreter is just over 2.5MB RSS
and the daemon shouldn't be CPU intensive.
