The only significative difference, IMHO, is that eventlet and gevent are
able to schedule coroutines directly in the main event loop (since they
have full control over it), while with Twisted and Python applications
embedded in C servers like Nginx, you have to return control to the
"framework" (this what the x-wsgiorg.suspend WSGI extension does).
