Different operating systems provide different ways to wait for I/O completion
events: there's select(), poll(), epoll() and kqueue(). For cross-platform
applications it can be a pain to support all this system functions, especially
because each one provides a different interface.
IOWait solves this problem by providing a unified interface and using always
the best and faster function available in the platform. Its only limitation is
that, on Windows, it only works for sockets.
