What do you mean with pull-push?
Maybe I'm making it myself too easy but I'd see every pipeline stage as a
scheduler, say, for Asynchronous a stealing threadpool scheduler(with one or
more threads), every stage getting a job transforming input data and posting
to the queue of the next scheduler a functor doing the next stage
Then I'd create a composite in one line of code to make sure work-stealing
happens and that would be it for the infrastructure.
Am I missing something?
