Idempotent clarifications

Here are a bunch of changes you can make for humans only. None of these changes should change how it compiles, so you should be able to change anything in this section and compare the resultant compile. It should be identical.

reformat

I've really love an automated pretty-printer akin to "black" for python or "cargo fmt" for rust so you can write whatever mess you want and have a computer indent it so it looks nice, but I haven't been able to find one yet.

"""
This is an example of what seems to be a garbage collection bug in Python 3.4.0
that does not exist in Python 3.3.3.
The example uses asyncio to create a producer that multiplexes to N consumers.
On my Mac, with N=100, 38 consumers are incorrectly garbage collected and only execute
once, dropping the surviving consumer count to 62.
