Not that this is really that important, but if we are talking about as 
the code stands right now, IS_SELECTABLE uses FD_SETSIZE with no such 
define ever appearing. That is what I meant, and I am pretty sure that 
is where Martin came up with saying it was 64. But like I say.. it's not 
that important. Sorry for the noise.
