The coroutines are definitely something to get into, although I'm
skeptical as well. Epoll and the associated idioms have been with us for
a long time and are well understood.

As for "easy to follow," unfortunately the complexities of network state
machines cannot be abstracted out, and the result is never exactly easy
to the eye.
