## 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.
