Thanks for the example, Stefano!  I think that this serves as an 
excellent counterpoint to my blog ramblings, and I think your ideas 
about where using gthreadless is appropriate are right on target.

I think it might even be appropriate to include this in Twisted, with 
some appropriate disclaimers about needing to understand Deferreds 
*first*... what do you think?
