I don't suppose the implementation was GPL'd or LGPL'd or could be?

Well, socket and file/pipe I/O have already been separated for CVS, and
if we go with the Cygwin hack of always declaring files ready, it
removes the need to be able to wait on multiple objects at the same
time, leaving us okay with either returning ready for any files or
blocking until any pipes are ready.
