Given a soft code system and other wise single threaded system
timeouts mean that I must either enforce nasty time limits on
softcode execution, or I must build full stack fault support into
the soft language supports such that I can push the soft context, go
do an IO loop, and then return to my soft context.  No thanks.  The
model of decoupling IO, softcode execution, etc is too damn simple
and clean to bother trying to munge them back together.
