It's hard to compose two blocking events without it. So strictly
speaking you could do a single oxenstored without Lwt, but even a
blocking console ring would introduce problems then.

I suspect in production that an oxenstored will also need a management
netfront or a logging ring of some kind, and so Lwt will be needed for
