RE: There is always the lecture circuit

"Running tasks in isolation and communicate via async messages "

Most likely it's the fire and forget and hope the buffer doesn't overflow
variety - Erlang style concurrency.  This seems to be the current method
everyone is interested in (Erlang, Scala actors, F# Async Mailboxes,
Microsoft Concurrency and Coordination Runtime).  There is sometimes some
form of guard available, be it one that allows checking of the incoming
message, or selection of one from multiple inputs.

"Running tasks in isolation and communicate via async messages "

Is this the same as a buffered channel, that blocks when it's full (like in
  or pipes (with some ALTing semantics)
    or send and forget into commen message queue (one per pri) 
      where it's not possible to stop a message arriving, like with guards?
        and no WYSIWYG semantics?
          Handling started sessions in "peace" is difficult with "async
          because a process often becomes its own scheduler.
