Just got through the tevent core changes.

Still reviewing - but the tevent changes are *amazingly* small
and clean for the change they make - great job !

Solves a different problem than the tevent_thread_proxy_schedule()
code does though I think - this new code changes the core
tevent loop scheduling whereas the tevent_thread_proxy_schedule()
stuff is essentially built on top of existing tevent code as
a utility function to pass memory back and forth.

So I don't feel like the older code is obsoleted :-) :-).

Once I've finished going through and pushed I'll see if
I can build the tevent_thread_proxy_schedule() on top
of the new core functionality to save having the extra
