I've just been playing around with Python for the first time in quite a
while and I discovered, much to my amazement, that it's got quite a bit
of support for writing coroutines these days.
The reason I'm mentioning them here is that it sounds as though Coyotos
is going to be using scheduler activations. Coroutines appear to me to
be quite a natural way of expressing what (I expect) to be happening in
the user land part of the scheduler. I don't know how much you mind the
user level scheduler existing as an opaque blob of assembly code though.
