so...

This is a runtime.  If you write libraries, don't use a runtime but
use futures directly.  There are other runtimes:

- async-std
- tokio
- fuchsia
- bastion (reliability)
- wasm-bindgen-futures

- futures  (pollables)
- executor (schedules polling, hands over to reactor on io)
- reactor  (waits on i/o to hand over to executor)

Core issue in initial design was due to self-referential structures,
which cannot be moved.  Solved by requiring that futures cannot be
moved, i.e. "pinned".
