The assynchronous APIs present a different programming
paradigm, so it doesn't make sense to be compatible
Considering that Lua's threading model is cooperative and
that most library operations are blocking, I don't see
much benefit from an asynchronous socket API in practice.
Or at least in the narrow confines of my current endeavors
The idea is to choke all notifications through a queue...
