-> callbacks

Callbacks can be evil - and they exclude several software systems 
(programming languages) which are not really prepared for callbacks.

Users of those libraries must write external low level c libraries to 
get callback features in a reliable way.

-> thread safe socket

I'm not on a level as the other people on this list are, but I only 
would like to be able to use creation/closing-socket-calls also be 
possible from another thread (not acually using the socket). Is ths 
possible - on all platforms ?

Actually I like the way zeromq is done. The few API calls and the 
external thread sending and receiving.
