The main event loop has always been a bit of a nuisance -- primary problems seem to be that devs find it hard to understand and also there's high-ish CPU utilization even in situations where it should be mostly idling.

Here's an old reference with other thoughts/ideas that I'm not sure are still relevant: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1388

A concrete project would be to test out porting the event loop to use something like libev or libuv (or other event library) and seeing what results from it.
