    Yup, looks familiar.

    The thing is, we cannot change existing select semantics, and the question
    is whether what most soft-realtime wants is actually select, or whether
    people really want a "waittimeofday()".

    Like your example, the only uses I've had personally (DVD playback) have
    really had an empty select, so it wasn't really select itself that was
    horribly important.
