  asyncore is documented in the latest release of the documentation; I 
don't think it's included in the most recent Windows installer.  It's

  Me!  You can send it to me at python-docs at, along with the 
appropriate release form.  See
for information about the release forms; we need that so we can
incorporate and distribute your additions.
