I briefly read over the actor components of rubinius and it seems very
erlang-inspired: every actor spawns in its own thread with its own
mailbox. There are also some facilities to register actors for global
discovery. I do not believe there's yet any way to communicate between
The Io practice of actors via message passing does make more sense

Yeah for per-object actors it makes more sense to have them be based on coroutines (Fibers). Erlang's processes are light-weight processes, too, although not cooperative in nature.
But for programs with lots of actors and asynchronous message passing you don't want to spawn a kernel thread for each of them.
I will look into implementing it soon, if you're interested in helping out, come by in #fancy to discuss things.
