So do I.
Nevertheless, I like to keep simple things simple. I don't feel like I
need a glue layer over simple socket and epoll api's.
What I might need is an event demultiplexor. Heavy loaded servers I'm
working on are event driven. Each event which is not naturally a file
descriptor readiness change is transformed in a socket(pair) write, so
that it can be demultiplexed by epoll_wait(). Thus, an application just
handles events in a loop around epoll_wait(). So, I might need a little
syntactic sugar around this stuff, but I have not elaborated my generic
