I'd very much like to work without threads for my application and
stick to a low level select(2)/poll(2)/kqueue(2) style mechanism. I
intend to build a small event driven programming library on top of the
underlying socket, POSIX and select/poll mechanisms and work that

That is not to say that I oppose having other mechanisms for people
who want threads -- just that some of us do not want to be forced to
use them to multiplex I/O. One thing that very much turned me off of
Scsh was a strongly expressed prejudice against event driven
