The thread solution doesn't really work. We've talking about that on IRC 
and code inspection revealed that any blocking sends performed in other 
threads will not work -- the transport is locked.

Therefore, it's necessary to use a select(2)-based loop with a way to wake 
up the thread. This, in turn, requires handling of timers. So you end up 
writing a full mainloop.
