And whats the connection to mutexes and signal handlers here? Your mails
to this list seem to become less and less sane - if you want to contribute
or discuss something, that's fine, but your mails seem to be nothing more
than random statements without meaning or relevance to libev.

I would urge you to change course into more productive directions because
frankly, I do not have time for this.
