Because of this thread, I finally finished an older post collecting 
valuable insights from last year discussions regarding concurrency 
modules available in Python: It 
appears to me that it would fit here well.

Back then, the old thread ("Concurrency Modules") was like basically 
meant to result in something useful. I hope the post covers the essence 
of the discussion.
Some even suggested putting the table into the Python docs. I am unaware 
of the formal procedure here but I would be glad if somebody could point 
be at the right direction if that the survey table is wanted in the docs.
