Hi Kevin,

Is there something different you want than Stackless tasklets, that
causes you to say "Tasklets" instead of just using the word?

1. There is no such existing framework that I am aware of, at least
not an open source one.  However, it does read like something I
occasionally stumble upon searching for Stackless.  Try searching for
"VyperCloud" and see if that is similar to what you want.

2. Too unclear/ambiguous for me to say for sure.  But generally in
order to maintain the ability to make synchronous calls over blocking
mechanisms, like sockets or higher level communication frameworks, you
use channels as a tool.
