FWIW, I use Qt on a server and expect to be able to use many sockets. It 
is built with glib there, which defers this whole conversation to 
whatever glib does, which AFAICT is poll(). My use of Qt eventing 
facilities is minimal. Only QSocketNotifier and QTimer. Not even 
QTcpSocket. I hope this means I can support thousands of sockets
