	A specification and a reference implementation would be more  
generally useful, I think.

	A C implementation isn't very useful when writing a java library  
since JNI ends up being really hard to use (as opposed to just  
dropping in a jar and having it work on any platform).

	Even if we're all writing C, the library may not fit into an  
application in general.  There are several event loop mechanisms and  
libraries for async programming in C.  It's very likely that a C  
implementation would be inappropriate for someone's C-based application.
