Advanced concurrancy

I'm looking for an advanced concurrency module for python and don't seem 
to be able to find anything suitable. Does anyone know where I might 
find one? I know that there is CSP like functionality built into 
Stackless but i'd like students to be able to use a standard python build.

I'm trying to develop distributed / Grid computing modules based on 
python. The aim is to be able to use barriers for synchronisation and 
channels for communication between processes running on a single box. 
Then the jump to multiple processes on multiple boxes and eventually to 
MPI implementations. Hopefully, each jump should not be that big a leap.

Of course it would be nice if there was a robust way of managing 
concurrency in python aswell ;-)
