Time for a stupid question from someone who doesn't know anything about Windows: if WSAPoll() is really terminally broken, is it really worth the hassle exposing it and warping the API?
AFAICT, FD_SETSIZE is already bumped to 512 on Windows, and Windows select() is limited by the fd_set size, not the maximum descriptor: so what exactly does WSAPoll() bring over select() on Windows?
(Especially if there are plans to support IOCP, wouldn't that make WSAPoll() obsolete?)
