Yes I know high-performance socket applications
use select() and use design patterns like Doug
Schmitt's Reactor.  

Right now high performance isn't my major concern.
Clarity of code and correctness are far more
I have to look at asyncore and Twisted to see how
easy they are to use. 

So far I like Stackless's model. It is a bit of
an adjustment to using channels as a general
purpose synchronization mechanism. But message
passing and pipes are powerful paradigms. Occasionally
I am not sure why somethings seemingly deadlock
but I am still learning the ropes.

Now I need the Stackless that can pickle a channel....
