yes, VarHandles are something to take a look at for sure.

sounds like a plan to me

you mean ?
Fibers there work based on agents and bytecode rewriting? CSP I have not 
seen, but I did not look to closely. License wise it might be ok, since 
it offers EPL 1.0 dual with GPL3 (the later would not be ok for us).

But frankly, if I am right about the fibers, then this part is no option 
for me. That leaves the CSP part, which I did not see and actors. Is it 
really worth it then?
