I meant it as a more general observation.

If something doesn't work as needed, consider either diving in to fix
it, or offering a bounty to someone to do so.

It sounds like these scheduler issues (IO and threads) are well-known
and reasonably well-understood.
All that's lacking is the last bit of the puzzle - the actual
developer to develop it. :)
