Equally respectfully, if you’re comparing libevent and libdispatch at all, then you’re only getting about 10% of what libdispatch actually is. The event handling piece is really just a small fraction of it. For a really nice overview written by someone *not* from Apple, I recommend: http://arstechnica.com/apple/2009/08/mac-os-x-10-6/12/
Libdispatch is also highly portable. I don’t think there’s an OS flavor it *hasn’t* been ported to at this point.
