I vote for conditional acceptance, provided the following conditions are

  1. The interface style must be redesigned such that:
     a. There is a clear separation between arguments and attributes.
     b. Arguments and attributes should not be arbitrarily interspersed
        in the parameter list.
     c. A set of attributes can be build in advance, and reused for
        different child processes.
     d. Attributes can be optionally to the attribute-set.

  2. There should be no I/O deadlocks by default.

  3. An Overview section that introduces the concepts and the various
     parts of the library must be added to the documentation.
