/dev/poll is more efficient when monitoring a large number of fd's, but
does libxcb really monitor more than one or two fd's?   There's also the
event ports interface in Solaris 10 and later if you're making a full 
list of options...


As noted in the last one, perhaps a library like libev/libevent that already
handles all the platform specific optimizations is best if you don't want
to just stick to poll().
