Also the gevent link should be updated to point to http://gevent.org

There have been no PIL updates in 4 years and the "friendly" fork named "Pillow" does support both Python 2 and 3 with similar or improved functionality.  The Twisted community has work to do to but is already on a path to Python 3 compatibility.    Pillow: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Pillow/2.1.0
