I mean, this is basically what that cooperative fiber stuff is doing behind the scenes. It's got a message pump. It's just that JS, being a scripting language, does it for you and hides the grotty details.

The upshot is you don't have script kids blowing up multithreaded code.

The downside is you don't have any more control than what you can convince JS to give you.

But overall, it's a good model considering the audience. Makes async painless, and it's actually almost easier to do async than sync calls with JS.
hack everything.
