There are two other options to consider:
 * greenlet, which has come out of the Stackless project:
http://codespeak.net/py/dist/greenlet.html
 * circuits, which comes with an iNotify driver:
http://trac.softcircuit.com.au/circuits/browser/circuits/lib/drivers/inotify_driver.py

Both of these libraries favour concurrency over threading, I believe.
