In breaking financial news:

[ambrus]: I think the minimal implementation here is just a timer and io function, plus pushing to the @REGISTRY.
[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
