Dave Reisner helped me out in #curl to realize that making an emulated event
thing using plain poll() might even be the best option here as it won't add
any extra dependency or build problems.

I think I'll start out with that and see how well it goes. Since the job is
limited to only support the easy interface it should be a rather limited
emulation that's needed anyway, so it won't matter if it isn't the most
efficient one.
