Can you please summarize and perhaps link to code they talk about?

I don't have video now and I don't want it to become an expectation
that Ruby contributors be able to deal with video
(either through hardware, software or human physical limitation)


No rush, either, barely have any computer access for a bit.


Again, Mio (Glasgow Haskell Compiler) is most similar to what
I'm working on, here, and that scales to some ridiculous number
of cores:

I don't use a dedicated epoll thread like they do;
but I also know epoll_wait uses exclusive wakeup in Linux,
so there's no thundering herd when a single event arrives
when multiple threads are sleeping in epoll_wait.
