In software development, collateral damage is another source of defects; you might try to shove it out of the way (or define it away), but it still represents a pile of new defects, and you're unlikely to be able to avoid dealing with those defects for long without taking a reputation hit.

I've found the technical debt metaphor very useful for talking about this sort of thing. Especially with non-programmers.

[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, at least that's what I think I'll start with. A timer and potentially the dummy IO function that never is ready
[ambrus]: That only lets you invoke the main loop from Prima->run;, not from AnyEvent->condvar- >recv; but that shouldn't matter
[Corion]: ambrus: Details ;)
[ambrus]: Like <c>{ package AnyEvent::Impl:: Prima; use Prima; sub io{ my($s,%r)=@_; Prima::File->new( file=>$r{fh},mask =>("w"eq$r{poll}? fe::Write():fe:: Read())|fe:: Exception,onRead =>$r{cb},onWrite =>$r{cb}, onException=>$r{cb }) } sub timer { ... } push @AnyEvent::REGI
[ambrus]: argh, too long, let me try on scratchpad
