Waiting on pthreads condition variables, POSIX message queues, and
semaphores (as well as fd's) at the same time would *rock*...

Unifying all these "waitable objects" would be tremendously helpful to fully
exploit the "library transparency" advantage that Linus brought up. Some
libraries might want to wait on things that are not file descriptors...

Dan
