Introduction.

  python-csp adds C.A.R. (Tony) Hoare's Communicating Sequential
  Processes to Python. A brief example:

  >>> @process
  ... def writer(channel, n):
  ...      for i in xrange(n):
  ...              channel.write(i)
  ...      channel.poison()
  ...      return
  ... 
  >>> @process
  ... def reader(channel):
  ...      while True:
  ...              print channel.read()
  ... 
  >>> chan = Channel()
  >>> Par(reader(chan), writer(chan, 5)).start()
