    mal> Is your package backwards compatible to asyncore ? If not, then it
    mal> might be a better idea, to place it on the web (e.g. on
    mal> SourceForge) and register the URLs with Parnassus so that Python
    mal> users can easily find it.

You might also bring it to Sam Rushing's attention.  I think he's been
working on "async, the next generation".  He will probably have some good
ideas and could provide some useful critique of the selecting code.  I don't
recall if he is on python-dev or not.
