that problem could be solved by fibers - if a fiber would enqueue an item
in a bounded-queue and
the queue is full, the fiber is suspended and the thread can resume another
fiber (executing another transformation).
if items are removed from the bounded-queue, the waiting fiber gets
notified an will be resumed, e.g. is able to
enqueue its item.
