in thread Parrot, threads & fears for the future.

In my opinion, POE is not widely used because non-blocking IO is hard but because POE itself isn't a nice programming model. I've programmed a bit with Coro, and there, the non-blocking IO is almost invisible. Unfortunately, Coro doesn't compile on native Windows and at the time it had some stability problems on Linux too, with glibc5, so I stopped using it.
