Tadeusz SoĊ›nierz (tadzik): MuEvent: AnyEvent lookalike for Perl 6

Trying to struggle with Select in Parrot, I accidentally discovered that its Socket has a .poll method. What a trivial, yet satisfying way to have some simple non-blocking IO. Thus, MuEvent was born.

Why MuEvent? Well, in Perl 6, Mu can do much less than Any. MuEvent, as expected, can do much less than AnyEvent, but it's trying to keep the interface similar.

You're welcome to read the code, and criticise it all the way. Keep in mind that I can no idea how should I properly write an event loop, so bonus points if you tell me what could have been done better. I don't expect MuEvent to be an ultimate solution for event-driven programming in Perl 6, but I hope it will encourage people to play around. Have an appropriate amount of fun!
