Provide framework for multiple event loops
AnyEvent provides an identical interface to multiple event loops. This allows module authors to utilise an event loop without forcing module users to use the same event loop as only a single event loop can coexist peacefully at any one time.
The interface itself is vaguely similar but not identical to the Event module.
On the first call of any method, the module tries to detect the currently loaded event loop by probing wether any of the following modules is loaded CoroEvent, Event, Glib, Tk. The first one found is used. If none is found, the module tries to load these modules in the order given. The first one that could be successfully loaded will be used. If still none could be found, AnyEvent will fall back to a pure-perl event loop, which is also not very efficient.
