As Jeff has said, we would prefer you not do this until the 1.9 series is released, and we won't be porting this change to the 1.7 series anyway.

Great! I'll try to take a look at next week.

I noticed another message about using a threaded libevent after all on

produce a non-threaded libevent in Fedora?

Thanks again.
