Hello Oliver,

This is very useful work. I'd very much like (see someone else) implementing
CSP like channel/light-weight-process on top of it. My recent experience
with google's Go language give quite positive impression of that model. Have
you had a look of Russ Cox's libtask ( which also
provide a context wrapper (on *nix platforms).

For the windows platform, now we have user-mode-scheduling (UMS) feature in
Windows7 and WindowsServer2008R2, which kind of fixed many issues of fibers.
Could it be a fallback for your interface?
