Isn't the choice between poll() and select() part of the whole abstraction
idea? I thought that we should be able to work with both, and apr should
be configurable for the individual *nix variant to use the variant that's
better supported (IIRC select() works better in BSD derived *nix's and
poll() works better in SysV derived *nix's).
