Not with the same reactor instance.

Yes.  Stop using runUntil().  I haven't seen any examples or explanations 
from you that show you actually need it for anything.  'runUntil()' is 
intended for a top-level event loop.  Code that is inside an event loop 
should not use it unless you need a nested event loop.  If you can explain 
why you need a nested event loop, I'll help you figure out how to get it 

Most likely, however, whatever you're trying to do will more easily be 
accomplished by yielding to an event, or setting an event callback.
