I chose it because Twisted and Tornado both start with T. But those
have kind of dark associations; I wanted to offset that with something
lighter. (OTOH we could use a black tulip as a logo. :-)

Regardless, it's not the kind of name we tend to use for the stdlib.
It'll probably end up being asynclib or something...
