Detailed Description

lib/dispatch: In-process message delivery.

This module provides a general in-process "message dispatch" system in which typed messages are sent on channels. The dispatch.h header has far more information.

It is used by by lib/pubsub to implement our general inter-module publish/subscribe system.

This is not a fancy multi-threaded many-to-many dispatcher as you may be used to from more sophisticated architectures: this dispatcher is intended only for use in improving Tor's architecture.
