I'd like to request the addition of a macro or some other means to force the
choice of a select-based demuxer, even when compiling on a platform that
supports epoll. For example, I might end up compiling binaries on
2.6-basedsystems but wanting to run them on
2.4-based ones. There doesn't seem to be any way to do this currently.
