The documentation
(http://rainbows.rubyforge.org/Rainbows/EventMachine.html)
specifically lists EventMachine as compatible with this model. Are
there alternative ways to get this type interface without
EventMachine? My current application is using the EventMachine loop to
answer requests and spawn Celluloid Actors (which are in their own
threads) which write back to the main thread. Seems like maybe I
should just use a Thread-per-client model? I'm currently using Sinatra
to do the HTTP acrobatics.

Thread-per-client is a perfectly good model, especially on 64-bit.

async.callback was only added because Thin supports it; and I
don't think anybody's tried to make it work without EM.  IMHO
it's ugly.

I'd like to get this working using the Celluloid threading, then I
don't have to manage them myself, seems harder to have sinatra do
thread-per client with is streaming code, its tied to async.callback.
