I don't need to change my code as I have now worked round the problem,
but for an example of why someone might want nonblocking mode:

It was not actually in order to do any more work, but because I was
managing both input and output to gdb in one thread (for simplicity). I
therefore needed to collect everything gdb had printed out, but not try
to read any more and cause a block because then I could not give GDB its
next command, and gdb would not give me any more until I did.

I think I did try select, but if I recall correctly, that doesn't work
well with .readline() either. I can't remember why, though.
