Funny thing is that asyncore (aka medusa) is one of the highest 
performing asyncronous socket libraries for Python that is available. 
It also compares nicely (performance-wise) with most anything you could 
find in non-interpreted languages.

Honestly, I don't know what your issue is.  It is event based, and in 
the realm of event driven frameworks, is reasonable.

So what is your problem?
