Then I read it like a novel. Then somewhere out of the blue, the Tulip word shows up.


Unlike the standard library :mod:`queue`, you can reliably know this Queue's
   size with :meth:`qsize`, since your single-threaded Tulip application won't
   be interrupted between calling :meth:`qsize` and doing an operation on the

The Tulip word breaks the flow of the story because we never introduce the Tulip word previously. There are two ways to handle this situation:
1. Introduce the Tulip word in the introduction and other parts consistently,
2. Remove the references to Tulip.

I suggest we take option 2 (users of Python 3.4 asyncio stdlib have no reason to know the word Tulip). Here is the patch.
