AsyncFP Release 1.1.0 provides a new Interop class that can be used by
a Scala Reactor (or Actor) to send requests to an AsyncFP Actor and
receive the responses. See

Until now, all your code had to be written using AsyncFP actors, and
that is too much of a barrier to acceptance. Now your legacy Scala
code can make use of tools developed with AsyncFP... not that there
are any yet.

My goal for the next 6 months is to develop a high-performance b-tree
database. If it could only be used by programs written exclusively
using AsyncFP actors, I doubt that it would see much use!
