    I actually meant select() in all its glory, a.k.a. The Keyword With
Two Unrelated Implementations.  I proposed an implementation of this as
a milestone not because it's so useful, but because it's especially hairy,
and we'll need to support it at least in backwards-compatibility mode.

    To bring this all back around, this thread started with a working
group proposal.  Are there any more comments on whether this is a
worthwhile and well-defined working group?
