Hey all,

The "greenlet" from http://codespeak.net/py/dist/greenlet.html
is a rather interesting way of handling flow of control.

I can't seem to find anything else on the subject
except for the above link and the most recent version
0.2 and it's tests.

What can "greenlet"'s be used for ? What use-cases
have you guys used them for (if any) ?

Can they be used in place of threads with much
the same effect -  but more lightweight ?

cheers
James
