For Ocean to succeed, you either have to work really hard to make non-blocking calls (I'm thinking of SSL sockets), or you need the ability to call functions on OS threads.  The calls need to block their calling Process and let the other Processes run as though nothing is happening.

Yes. This is the approach we advocate in the Ocean project.
We would like to see it generalized beyond the network library.
