delayed (data is queued and sent when the socket loop says the

writable), which means there is no contention and you can
"write" to any
socket from anywhere in the program (as long as it's in the
same thread).

This has been solved in the meantime. Reads and writes can now occur concurrently in different fibers.

Good to know. What about writing from multiple fibers to the same connection (e.g. an IRC client that needs to send PINGs from a timer fiber and also announce events coming from other fibers)? IIRC a connection's input/output streams needed to be explicitly associated with a fiber?
