I don't have a C10K problem, but I do have a code-organization
problem. Much essential processing in a large old client app is
structured (if that's the word I want) as chains of callbacks from
asynchronous network I/O. Given the latency of the network requests,
fibers would have to have ridiculous, shocking overhead before it
would start to bother me.

I think that's a valid class of use cases. I don't buy the argument
that adoption of Fiber requires performance tuning first.
