Good story :-)

This could also happen in the current implementation, if a plugin
starts a blocking system call inside its scheduler event handling
function. You'll have to trust your plugin writers to some extent.

In other words, if the disadvantage of b) is not worse than the current
situation, we might accept it.

just my 2 cents.
