Multiplexing is a bit limited on Windows, I don't think you can select 
on both sockets and pipe handlers in the one select. It should be rare 
to need to do this of course. So it should be possible to have the 
Windows Selector partition the selectable channels so that they are 
multiplexed via different threads when it arises.
