Makes sense.

I guess you mean WaitEventSetWait() and WaitEventAdjust*?  I've tried,
and my attempt ended up look nearly unreadable, because of the number of
ifdefs. I've not found a good attempt. Which is sad, because adding back
select support is going to increase the duplication further :( - but
it's also further away from poll etc. (different type of timestamp,
entirely different way of returming events).

You mean in WaitEventSetWait()? There's
                else if (rc == 0)
which is the timeout case. There should never be any other case of
                returning 0 elements?

Thanks for looking.
