I'm not sure how easy the decisions will be in all cases, but
certainly some broad guidelines would be awesome. (The exact analysis
of "when should I use threads and when should I use processes" is a
big enough one that there've been a few million blog posts on the
subject, and I doubt that asyncio will shrink that.) A basic summary
would be hugely helpful. "Here's four similar modules, and why they
all exist in the standard library."
