+gtornado = Tornado + gevent
+===========================
+
+:Author: Wil Tan
+:Version: $Revision:
+
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+Tornado_ is a high performance web server and framework. It operates in a non-blocking fashion,
+utilizing Linux's epoll_ facility when available. It also comes bundled with several niceties
+such as authentication via OpenID, OAuth, secure cookies, templates, CSRF protection and UI modules.
+
+Unfortunately, some of its features ties the developer into its own asynchronous API implementation.
+
+This module is an experiment to monkey patch it just enough to make it run under gevent.
+One advantage of doing so is that one can use a coroutine-style and code in a blocking fashion
+while being able to use the tornado framework.
