Is this necessarily true? I've been trying to find ways to extract
enough information to perform scheduling in such a way that events
operating on the overlapping working sets don't run simultaneously any
more than is necessary. Of course, that frequently requires a way for
coders to specify affected objects manually to allow the scheduler to
figure out what events are compatible, and some may not bother... but is
that actually worse than other (non-event-based) methods of handling
Conspiracy theorists mistakenly assume others think before acting.
