Yes, but I think we could wait a little, to make sure the API is good
enough to fulfill all tulip's need?
There are a couple things I'm not completely happy with:
- if we add a CONNECT event, then I think SELECT_IN/SELECT_OUT aren't
good names anymore: I think that EVENT_READ/EVENT_WRITE/EVENT_CONNECT
would be more consistent (since it embeds the operation that should
now succeed on the socket). Maybe even shorter names like EVT_READ?
- right now, selectors don't handle EINTR, which means that upon
reception of a signal, Selector.select() can fail with EINTR (the
original tulip implementation also had this problem). I've been more
or less midly advocating to change all Python syscalls wrappers to
handle EINTR because it's really just a nuisance, but I think
Selector.select() should definitely handle EINTR and retry the
syscalls (with an updated timeout).
Note: the test testAddSignalHandler() added recently doesn't
demonstrate this problem because os.kill(os.getpid(), signal.SIGINT)
because the signal is delivered synchronously (when kill() syscall
returns to user-space), before select()/poll()/epoll() gets called.

SelectorKey, or something along those lines?

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about Windows, so I won't be able to.
But I guess that porting Pollster.WSAPollster to selectors shouldn't
be too hard.

Actually, I already have commit rights ;-)
