I wrote that particular pollmodule.c, I don't know if there are
others. I think the idea of putting it into the posix module is a
good one, actually: we have never used the poll support at eGroups
simply because we have another module named 'poll' that does something
completely unrelated. Probably a pretty common problem.

[I was about to ask about moving select() over there, too, but I see
that this has already started a discussion on python-dev]
