  Hmm, how do you poll sockets on OS/2 then? If there is some way,
then maybe that hack should go into the select library (the select
library treats sockets specially as polleable objects). Perhaps I
should rework the patch so that use of select is avoided if either the
import fails or the timeout is None. But (and maybe Guido will offer
his opinion here), I'd like to hold out to see if it really is the
case that some system doesn't support a select equivalent for sockets.
