The main reason why libevent was not used:

* Marc Lehmann <lib...@schmorp.de> chose to move on from libevent -> 
libev+libeio and strip out complex buffer handling. Small and targeted and 
embeddable are all KISS; automating buffer allocation handling is hardly useful 
or necessary to rpmio.

The main reason why libuv (and nodejs) are not appropriate for RPM:
* libuv/nodejs are about asynchronous networking: nothing much within RPM4 I/O 
needs/uses any network related system calls, so most of libuv is overkill.
