This put me off for a while, but a literal read of this statement does not discourage our
use. I want to use nonblocking mode to do "non-blocking I/O". Nonblocking i/o is not the

Yikes!  Didn't know I had a long list and certainly don't want that to discourage others
from pitching in. There are a few things in the STATUS file with my name on them. I'll fix

non-blocking names pipes. Need to clean it up a bit them I'll commit it. I'll do the winnt
MPM work to make it win 95/98 friendly.  Next, I want to finish work on the file handle
cache.  That's all I claim for now; please go for anything else!

I'll update the STATUS file with more stuff that needs to be done.
