I think thats pretty obvious. Select() is an event queue mechanism which
does a setup for each select(). Asynchronous I/O has some similar
properties (clone, I/O , signal) but is only per handle. A pure event
queue model does one setup per handle only per handle that matters and
not per event setups. You just get the queue overheads
