+async
+=====
+Async aims to make writing asyncronous processing easier. It provides a task-graph
+with interdependent tasks that communicate using blocking channels, allowing
+to delay actual computations until items are requested.
+Tasks will automatically be distributed among 0 or more threads for the actual computation.
+
+Even though the GIL effectively prevents true concurrency, operations which block,
+such as file IO, can be sped up with it already. In conjuction with
+custom c extensions which release the GIL, true concurrency can be obtained as well.
