Understandable but sorry to hear it all the same.

For the record, I make a lot of use of GPars and it is extremely reliable
and solid. I've been on the verge of submitting a pull request to add
back-pressure to the actor classes since that's my main pain point in using
the library.

Thanks for all the work you have put into it over the years!
