I haven't watched the video (sorry), but my understanding of the
situation is that:

Kotlin Coroutines already give you the necessary foundations for doing
event loop, reactive, and the channels/lightweight
processes/threadpool/executors things. So you can do all the goroutine
type stuff on the JVM already. 

Project Loom is really about bringing an evolution of Quasar into the
JVM so as to avoid all the hacking around that Quasar currently has to
do to work properly. I think this is a good thing, and about time it

GPars had all this stuff in 2008. :-)

GPars is now effectively a dead project.

Channels/lightweight processes/executors/threadpools is now the norm in
Rust as well. I hear even C++ will get this stuff soon.
