    I'm not so sure. If the epoll documentation were clear enough
    (which at the moment, frankly, it isn't), I think
    there's a good chance users would not be confused
    by the difference between level-triggered and edge-triggered
    events.

    I'd be happy to contribute better doc... has the man page
    for sys_epoll been written yet?
