I should probably mention some of the components available (features);
 * TCPServer, TCPClient
 * UDPServer, UDPClient
 * HTTP, IRC and SMTP protocols
 * Web Server (with limited WSGI support) (depends on parts of CherryPy)
 * Timers, Timer
 * Logger, Debugger
 * ... there are many more components ... :)

Building new components is fairly easy as well.
