pip curdling

# In a nutshell

What if you could speed up your python builds seamlessly ?
Replace your `pip install` with `curd install` today and feel the difference:

Installing flask with curdling
~ॐ time curd install flask
Installing: [##########] 100% (6/6)

real 0m2.412s
user 0m1.478s
sys 0m0.669s

Installing with pip
~ॐ time pip install -q flask

real 0m16.359s
user 0m3.036s
sys 0m1.005s

## Why is it faster to install with curdling ?

Python has a new<sup>1</sup>
that proposes a binary format for distribution of compiled python
packages called ["wheel"](

Curdling is a concurrent python package installer that smartly
parallelize package discovery, dependency resolution, download,
compiling, caching and installing.

It's like `easy_install` or `pip`, but a lot faster.

<sup>1</sup>: The PEP is "relatively new" from September 2012
