Re: [perl #108470] Term::ReadLine should use AE instead of Tk forevent looping
Message ID:
Paul, I know, Marc is very hard man to talk, but why don’t you and Marc
come to mutual understanding?

Your ::Loop::AnyEvent goes into AE's internals. It's not a good point of
interaction with other modules

You abuse Marc's module, so he insert a protection from abusing.

If I know, that something on CPAN will not work, or will work badly with my
module I prefer to protect from such interaction.

Just try to talk with him and many users of AE and IO::Async will win
instead of stupid war between AE and IO::Async
