It's not fast enough for Neural Nets for example but it's fast enough
to manage a lot! And you have to be careful how you call your shells 
or RR will sit waiting until it receives the answer from the shell. 

Just smaller considerations to remember. These little things seem like 
a problem or limit in RR but you can go around most of these one way
or another. 

If there is one missing feature in RR, it's threading!
