To get the feature to the mainline, we'll need non-busy-waiting version
of it. (Note that there's no busy waiting anywhere in 0MQ.)
The actual implementation would be presumably platform specific,
however, there's a common mechanism that we can always fallback to.
Namely, we can poll (or select on win32 and openvms) on the single file
descriptor. The poll (or select) luckily has a timeout parameter we can
use to get the behaviour we want.
