Yep, both of those are on my to-do list, but it might be several
versions before I get to them.

As /dev/poll is also available on older versions of Solaris,
that's the one I intend to support first.

I believe that a /dev/poll reactor implementation would be very
similar to the existing epoll_reactor, so that could be used as
a starting point. If you, or someone else, would be willing to
contribute an implementation, it will be gratefully accepted.
