Good question -- I haven't looked into that at all, but I can discuss it
with Rickard (or maybe if he sees this he can just answer here). I would
guess this specific restriction won't be lifted, but I think using
enif_send from a dirty scheduler thread shouldn't be a problem.

Looking at the enif_send code just now, I suspect it won't work if you try
using it from an RC1 dirty scheduler thread. I'll put that on the list for
RC2.
