I find Charles' argument pretty convincing. The whole point of this API is to have another thing you can add to the selector to deal with a race condition. You then pass this thing's fileno() to signal.set_wakeup_fd(). That should be totally portable.

I'm find with it requiring a fd that refers to a socket on Windows; plain files aren't selectable anyway (not even on UNIX).
