Well, my server is in stackless python and its been a revelation.  
Unfortunately, my client is already written (for the most) in c++, and 
yes, its DirectX, so speed is paramount. I guess my OP was more out of 
curiosity. I don't see me doing (another) re-write ;)

I'm not sure I have the time or knowledge of hybrid systems to blend the 
two, although with hindsight, I wish I had done!
