Any thoughts on this...


 From http://www.heise.de/english/newsticker/news/145214 Bret Taylor,  
Facebook's Director of Products:

     """Tornado also offers much higher performance than existing  
Python web frameworks. A multiple process Tornado server on a 4 core  
2.4Ghz AMD Opteron system managed 8213 web requests per second, while  
a single threaded version managed 3353. This compares with Django at  
2223 requests per second, Web.py at 2066 and CherryPy at 785."""
