A Celery worker that accepts all other tasks. This worker also runs an

Eternal tasks
GWCelery has a few long-running tasks that do not return because they have to
keep open a persistent connection with some external service. These tasks are
subclasses of :class:`celery_eternal.EternalTask` or
* :meth:`gwcelery.tasks.lvalert.listen`
These tasks run inside the general-purpose worker process described above,
and are automatically started (and restarted as necessary) by Celery Beat.
