Python company worth $100M

Nope, don't think you're missing anything. If I recall correctly, the
asyncore docs even mention their assumption that the processing to be done
per call is trivial.  Since all other channels are "blocked" while the
compute-heavy call is processing, the system will suffer performance
degradation for all other clients.  Thread-pools seem to be a decent
approach for longer-running calls.

Cheers,
Mike

Actually, we're moving away from asyncore in favor of threads.  Unless
we're missing something obvious, asyncore just doesn't do well with
compute-heavy processes.
