+The idea is to have an ubber simple decorator
+which simply defers the calculation of any function
+or method off process.
+
+The decorated function returns a lazy object,
+which will just attempt to retrieve the actual
+return value of the function when it is about to
+be used in any Python expression.
+
+Currently, the only public member in the
+project is the "paralell" decorator, which is used just as:
+
+@paralell
+def retr_url(url):
+    return urllib.urlopen(url).read()
+
+-And voilá - upon calling the above "retr_url",
+execution simply proceeds, while Python multiprocessing
+creates another process to actually download the url
+contents.
+
+Unlike Python's 3.2 concurrent.futures, there is no
+setup needed - just decorate your function
+and you are all set-up to go.
