I probably must clarify my need.

Let's consider 100 opened sessions. On each session, if a message of type X is
received, I want it to be processed before Y seconds.

I don't want to reorder messages received per session.

Instead, when my server 'elects' the next session for processing, I want it to
first promote the sessions having a message X older than (Y-Z) seconds.

I have checked BaseThreadPool, and if I understand well, I would need 
to change
'fetchBuffer' so that it first chooses SessionBuffer containing such message.

Is that correct?

I am not sure as the difference between readySessionBuffers and
busySessionBuffers does not appear clearly to me (why is a BufferSession added
to busySessionBuffers in fireEvent?)
