Subject Re: The lack of poll()

When is going to be a while.  You will be best off kludg'ing in select
stuff.  When I said synch'ed for the last time, I was probbaly simplifying
things too much.  Obviously, we aren't going to stop keeping the code from
Apache-1.3 and Apache-2.0 in synch, but we will have a very hard time
doing that with one big patch after 2.0 starts using APR.  It will be much
easier to just commit each patch twice, one in 1.3 and once in 2.0.  This
is because there will be too many differences in the code.
