The system was quite lightly loaded, and besides, waits *without*
timeout were triggered extremely quickly. At the moment my program
uses waits without timeout and triggers the events every now and then
on a seperate thread - which seems to work quite well, but is a
needless complication. Perhaps I could use sched and make this thread
more generic (to implement my own version of wait-with-timeout) but I
would still rather take a "native" solution, too bad it doesn't seem
