There are several issues, but let me address what I consider to be the key
one: we have to design the core code as push-model.  If we were to design
the code as pull-model, we would lose the thread of execution inside the
callee.  We don't want the callee blocking on I/O and returning when
finished.  But with a non-blocking callee, we can then use either a NIO or
IO wrapper as necessary.

Obviously the interface between the I/O handling wrapper and the data
handling core will have to be Java 2 < 1.4 compatible.
