Very nice quote, though there's one thing I don't understand:

If he will not go, let two stout monks, in the name of God, explain the matter to him.

Hmm, "stout." That means, like, "able to explain stuff really well," right?

    In this context, I think it means "able to explain stuff very convincingly" ;)

    Personally I think he meant two monks who had had enough to drink that they had the courage to push the offender out. ;-)

    I think it's a spelling mistake and should rather read as "stdout" instead of "stout", and STDOUT monks are shure to explain a lot ;)

[ambrus]: So that, or if you really want something agnostic to the loop, then use curl multi. Its interface is quite reasonable (unless you use an old version),
[ambrus]: though it's very C-like (serious use of varargs so easy to pass the wrong type), and there are some minor problems (busy loop because it doesn't use the same timer as your event loop, so you have to artificially delay timer callbacks by a small amount).
