Yes, I proposed just a simple interface to start with.  Indeed, more
advanced interfaces hit interesting problems, as you point out, e.g.
with reference counting.  We should try to build something and see if
the basic interface makes sense or if it would be useful to have more,
or something else altogether.

I have finished to implement the basic interface by now; should I check
it in?  I must admit I'm not entierely sure if it will be sufficient.
But I guess that you're interested in trying it out -- unless you
already see that it's missing something to build, say, tasklets?

A bientot,
