Full Ack on the whole mail :-)

Thanks for writing it down. I had tried to do the handover from the
helper thread to the main thread in a simpler way, but I really could
not find any that would survive all tests that I did at the time. In
particular I tried hard to avoid the event_ctx_mutex, but that seems
difficult to achieve if you want to be able to destroy a pthreadpool
or event context while threads are blocked hard somewhere and
eventually wake up.
