+1 esp. on PyGI/Vala, and Threading patterns.  Despite the fact that you've consigned this project to eternal obscurity by naming it "Khövsgöl."

This would be a somewhat David-Beazley-esque talk, in that PyGI provides an attractive alternative to Swig for interfacing Python with native libraries. It would also include a quick introduction to Vala, the lingua franca of the GObject world.

Khövsgöl has a very simple, but scalable multithreaded implementation of this called "Nap", which is styled after Prudence's routing API. Get it? RESTful? Nap? I'll be happy to present it.
