My previous message was not entirely correct. Sorry for that.

The emulator will not be completely blocked when doing the actual
socket I/O - socket I/O is
already non-blocking. However, the non-SMP emulator will be blocked
while converting a big
term to to the external term format (and that was what I was thinking
of when writing my
previous incorrect answer).

So using the async thread pool will not help at all.
