It depends entirely on what you are trying to do.  The Event package provides
a framework for a SEDA like infrastructure where components are stitched together
using event queues.  It helps increase scalability while minimizing complexity
in event based programming.  In other words, it forces a minimal structure to
that type of computing.

In the Event package is a CommandManager, where you can execute commands
asynchronously using a small amount of threads in the background tasks.
It is useful for management functions and all.

As far as how to best help you, I would need some more information on what
problem you are trying to solve.
