It's been a long held desire to have a library available for Stackless
that monkeypatches calls that block to the operating system and
therefore block the interpreter and entire scheduler, with calls that
merely block to the scheduler and therefore only block the current
tasklet until an asynchronous IO operation completes.

Interesting, one of the many libraries based on the Greenlet spinoff
extension seems to have already done this.
