We put eventlet into production use to handle a specific UDP service
when our old solution failed to scale. We also used it to build some
test clients to perform load/stress testing on our production

I was overall very happy with it and we're looking into ways to roll
it out into our standard stack. That's where incorporating it into
haigha would be a major benefit, as our AMQP clients would be using
eventlet for all IO and time sharing.
