Hi All,

Why is ZeroMQ not using libevent? ZeroMQ code is doing a lot to make sure
it's support all the operation system and for windows is using select which
doesn't scale good.

Libevent is doing all the operation system support thing and from version
2.0 support IO Completion ports for windows (I'm not sure to what level).

Removing all the operation system support code from ZeroMQ will make it
much cleaner.

I think this can be a good goal, maybe to version 5.
