AFAICT, this also affects poll().
Although it's supposed to be passed an integer, passing a float will result
in a truncation towards 0:
"""
$ strace -e poll python -c "import select; p = select.poll(); p.poll(0.9)"
poll(0x23321b0, 0, 0)                   = 0 (Timeout)
"""

See also this line in PollSelector:
"""
        def select(self, timeout=None):
            timeout = None if timeout is None else max(int(1000 * timeout),
0)
"""

This will round timeout=1e-4 to 0.
