What is Greenlet? ----------------- The greenlet package is a spin-off of Stackless, a version of CPython that supports micro-threads called "tasklets". Tasklets run pseudo-concurrently (typically in a single or a few OS-level threads) and are synchronized with data exchanges on "channels". A "greenlet", on the other hand, is a still more primitive notion of micro-thread with no implicit scheduling; coroutines, in other words.
greenlet is the standalone package derived from the py lib, and is used by several non-blocking IO packages as a more flexible alternative to Python's built in coroutines.
