I would think that you could probably get 80% of the performance with 
ordinary threads and ordinary blocking IO, and without the great 
increase in complexity required to implement asynchronous IO. If someone 
then wants to go after a possible 25% performance gain, they could 
submit a working set of modifications, or wait a few months for the 
hardware to catch up.
