I'm curious as to some of the situations you believe need OoO.  I can't
think of any that wouldn't be better handled by a different solution. 
Of course, "better" is subjective, so I might have considered the
situations you're referring to and felt differently.  Still, can you
give me an idea of what you're thinking?
