sorry, John, as i now see, Einar already implemented select/epoll
machinery in the alt-network lib. moreover, now he promised to extract
this functionality to make universal async i/o layer library. the only
thing that i don't know - whether he is ready to develop universal API
for these modules, as you initially proposed.

as this universal API will be done, i will roll up the Stream
transormer that uses it and therefore allows async i/o both with files
and sockets on any platform where this API can be implemented

Best regards,
