A couple of places down my list of things to add to libevnet is a
wrapper around AIO (asynchronous I/O interface defined by SUSv3 which is
supposed to work w/ file I/O), and a threaded implementation for
platforms w/o real AIO (which would be almost all of them). This would
be exposed through the "bufio.h" interface of libevnet the same way
socket I/O is, through a file object which exports source/sink/poll
functions. Ultimately something like sendfile(2) would also be
supported, but it's all about baby steps.
