Right now with EINTR, EAGAIN and EWOULDBLOCK and the EACCESS with Apr
does in house I can cover linux,hpux,aix,solaris and *bsd - even under
funky (benchmark) circumstances (when the EINTR is the issue).

But yes - I see the problem - each call type; i.e. lock, read/write,
connect et.al. would each have to have it's own IS_RETRYABLE().
