I agree with Simo.
Please bundle something, do not create your own.
Supporting things beyond select is quite important; you need something
that does more than 1024 fds at a minimum.
But really, you actually want a real event library.
Pick one of the many options you have.
My preference is libevent, but I'm happy with whatever.
