I would expect WSASend() to be faster than an iterative send().

The ifdef within USE_POLL seems useless.

I wonder if XCB should be switched to use socket functions for I/O all the 
time. This would avoid most ifdefs. X11 cannot be run over anything but 
sockets anyway.

It was already mentioned, but I cannot find the windefs.h file anywhere. I 
also find the name a bit confusing considering that Win32 API defines 
<windef.h> (IIRC).
