It seems that Twisted Matrix lets you mix the two approaches quite nicely --
as an asyncore fan to another, I would suggest you look into Twisted, as "a
better asyncore than asyncore" in some ways:-).  (I've only really looked 
into the lower levels, so far, but I like what I see there, quite a lot).
