How about, you write your code in such a way that it deals with eports.
You could surround your code in a prompt that if an eport operation
aborts because it would block, you save the continuation and ask your
main loop to call you again when the port is readable / writable.  When
it calls you again you resume the partial continuation.

If you need to sleep, you use sleep from (ice-9 ethreads).  Somehow we
make it so that ethreads can use other main loops, like the dbus, efl,
etc loops.

Dunno.  So many possibilities!
