For reads, it is much better to turn off SelectionKey.OP_READ for the
channel you want to suspend reading.

For writes, SocketIoProcess should not call flushSession() method until
suspension is not released.

It should be easy to implement and actually Niklas provided a patch for

But I didn't look into it yet.

How would a multiplexing filter for mina be, do you know the oldish

I've just read WebMUX protocol specification roughly. If I understood
correctly, you could create a ProtocolEncoder and ProtocolDecoder that wraps
existing protocol Encoders and ProtocolDecoders.
