Patches accepted :)  Level-triggered already buys quite a lot over poll.
I expect edge-triggered is even better, but I don't think I have any apps
where I'd notice the difference (it's probably not likely I'd notice the
difference between poll and epoll, actually), so I probably won't be spending
any time on this in the near future.

Edge-triggered shares a lot less code with the existing reactors.  Maybe
some of the recent IOCP work will be leveragable to this goal, though.
