> Hi Yusuke,
> What is the status of this proposal?
> AFAICS there were no serious objections, quite the opposite, many people support your proposal (me too). However, no patches were landed yet.
Here is Nix patch updated to current master:
(original Nix port used glib event loop, but I'd like to avoid this dependency, that's why I added mock implementations of WorkQueue, MainThread, and RunLoop)
