No, that's actually not part of the plan. I'm focusing on allowing high
performance event systems to replace the select()-centric approach the current
multi interface suffers from. Or perhaps this is what you meant?

Of course, I'm not sure how that will benefit or affect Windows users as I
don't know if there are any high performance event systems that are portable
enough to work more or less similar on Windows as on *nix.

I just added more docs to the hiper section of the web site to show the
current API suggestion and a sample app I wrote up a while ago.
