good short term solution to reduce implementation effort.  But I 
would like to return to your idea in a couple months so that I 
can try a fiber based implementation instead.

It sounds like you might have a rigorous way of defining and 
keeping track of your state machines.  I could probably learn 
quite a bit from reading your source code, or the source for 
similarly implemented programs.  Are there examples you would
