Whenever I've needed a quick and easy solution for parallel batch processing, particularly where I need to pull a lot of data through external APIs ( like REST or SOAP for instance ), I've found php Curl extension's ability to run multiple http queries in parallel via curl_multi_select invaluable.

http://uk.php.net/manual/en/function.curl-multi-exec.php

While not fully asynchronous, data IS processed as it becomes available within the scope of any multi fetch query.

Could this be combined with libevent? Or are they not filehandles?
