The work I did was focused at getting examples to demonstrate a simple 
yet fully functional api. The eventloop was a necessary means to achieve 
that, but wasn't itself the primary driver (which was improving the 
usability and providing examples).

I now have the examples and the container they depend on working on top 
of the reactor and will commit the necessary changes shortly. The 
container simply provides some convenience methods for establishing 
connections and links, it is not an alternative api. Similar to the 
handlers it can be used if and when useful, but doesn't lock you in to 
doing so for everything.

That is a good idea. I'll do that once I get all the changes committed.
