[erlang-questions] New NIF behavior in R15???

Within the next month or two we will be starting a project interfacing Erlang to a C driver. This requires the use of a thread pool to support asynchronous behaviors. Ordinarily I would implement this with a linked in port driver. However, Rickard Green at his 2011 SF Erlang conference talk indicated that new support in the NIF framework might be forthcoming in R15 to support linked in driver style threading behavior in NIFS.

I would rather hold off implementing a linked in driver if the new NIF features are around the corner. Can anyone give any hints if this will be the case?
