I'm curious what the recommended method of querying Redis (or any DB for that matter) is from Tornado.
I've seen some examples like https://gist.github.com/357306 but they all appear to be using blocking calls to redis.
My understanding is that to avoid grinding Tornado to a halt, I need to be using non-blocking DB libraries like the ones developed for Twisted.
Am I wrong? How is this supposed to be done?
