On POSIX systems this is only achievable with select() & co., which in turn
implies that synchronization primitives must be fd-based. I currently have no
plans for implementing that, mostly because I recon that such primitives would
have worse performance in the normal use (i.e. when a single primitive is used
for thread synchronization).
