I attempted to write some ØMQ bindings
(, at least in part because
they would allow Parrot languages to easily interact with the Mongrel2
webserver. ØMQ is also an easier solution (IMHO) to many of the
problems people try to solve with AIO. These bindings are currently
blocked by thread-safety issues within the Parrot interpreter (which
need to be solved before we can offer true threading on Parrot).

Summary: give me half of a threading implementation, and I can supply
you with a decent AIO alternative and a straightforward means of
creating webapps.
