Sorry i was not clear, gevent-websocket is the project you were referring
to at the beginning of the thread as "gevent". Gevent (as a standalone
server) has no facilities for websockets (you need to install

Instead, the uwsgi websocket api is platform (and suspend engine)
independent and it is builtin by default in 1.9 serie.

You can use it with the gevent uWSGI plugin (if you use it) or as plain
multithread/multiprocess environment
