There's certainly little need for an API change to make this work
better, except for the odd existing method which does not take
an external reactor argument but simply finds the global one 
magically and uses it.  I believe there was a transition happening
to clean this up so that all such methods allowed a reactor to
be passed in, so other than this aspect, I agree no API change 
should happen (nor is one needed).
