Another couple of things which might help are Timothy O'Malley's
timeoutsocket module, and asyncore. The first keeps you from having to wait
for sockets to time out normally, which you will often find on filtered
ports. The second is the asyncore module, which lets you start lots of
non-blocking requests without holding up the whole works.
