Kevin's work is great. Kevin is a pretty cool guy to work with. Working on select was a blast. Comment on his blog!

In retrospect, I know what the code does so the fragments may not make immediate sense to an outsider. I'll ask Kevin to write a full example. As for the select paradigm. Well select makes a lot of problems easier to code. As I and hopefully more people experiment, we can improve the API. For now, I am probably going to improve the API via stacklesss.py

I have an example here: http://andrewfr.wordpress.com/

And I will soon post an initial sketch of what the Santa Claus problem would look like using select.
