Hi Jeff, sorry for the slow reply, I've been sick for the last week (I still am, though, argghh).

Thank you very much for your quick response and kind words

I barely have any experience with Hadoop, and I'm still learning the intricacies of Avro, but I'll try to contribute to the discussion.

Yes, I started some work on making the examples launchable by twistd (Twisted's launcher, which lets you choose any of the available reactors, among other things), but I couldn't finish it. In any case, if you could have a look at the latest patch (528-support-twisted-4.patch), that would be awesome. I can always create another ticket later and submit a patch for twistd and the examples.
Thanks a lot!
