Actually I'm playing with kqreactor right now, but before starting
serious work on it need to settle on new py-kqueue API first.

Results of first attempts to change kqreactor are very promising.
For example reactor's Waker implemented using kqueue's timer is much
simpler and way faster than FIFO ping-pong. Timers can be used for
CallLater as well...
