Cooperative

Write non-blocking computationally expensive code to go along with non-blocking io, without having to think about everything in callbacks.

batch_accumulate will iterate over a generator in batches, yielding to other iterators passed into twisted.internet.task.cooperate

Example

#!/usr/bin/env python
# _*_ coding: utf-8 _*_

        if 75000 == value:
