Good bye isolates, Node.js hardly knew ye
This morning a check-in to the Node development tree backed out the support for isolates. The explanation is pasted in below.
Revert support for isolates. It was decided that the performance benefits that isolates offer (faster spin-up times for worker processes, faster inter-worker communication, possibly a lower memory footprint) are not actual bottlenecks for most people and do not outweigh the potential stability issues and intrusive changes to the code base that first-class support for isolates requires. Hence, this commit backs out all isolates-related changes. Good bye, isolates. We hardly knew ye.
