It may change between minor versions of gevent. .. rubric:: Watchers The methods that create event loop watchers are `io`, `timer`, `signal`, `idle`, `prepare`, `check`, `fork`, `async_`, `child`, `stat`. These all return various types of :class:`IWatcher`. All of those methods have one or two common arguments. *ref* is a boolean saying whether the event loop is allowed to exit even if this watcher is still started. *priority* is event loop specific.

If you create loops (especially loops that are not the default) you *should* call this method when you are done with the loop. .. caution:: As an implementation note, the libev C loop implementation has a finalizer (``__del__``) that destroys the object, but the libuv and libev CFFI implementations do not.
