  Description     : Cooperative light-weight thread library for OCaml

    Lwt is a library of cooperative threads implemented in monadic
    style. With respect to preemptive threads, cooperative threads are
    not using a scheduler to distribute processor time between
    threads. Instead of this, each thread must tell the others that he
    wants to let them work.

Previous versions of Lwt were shipped with Ocsigen (already packaged
in Debian). Lwt is now shipped separately upstream, and the next
release of Ocsigen will need this new version of Lwt.
