[libdispatch-dev] Using libdispatch in a real-time context

Audio developers on OSX would be interested to be able to use  
libdispatch in their applications. We understand that right now  
libdispatch is not designed to be used in a RT context (I guess  
because of memory issues when using blocks...).

Would it be technically possible to extend libdispatch to be used in a  
RT context? so basically having worker threads to be setup with "time- 
constraint" kind of priority on OSX... and possibly working on a RT  
capable memory manager for blocks management ?
