IMO the attempt to stay 'as true to posix as possible' is admirable,
but a bit misguided when it comes down to abusing select() to act as a
high resolution timer .... The select() in winsock is there only to be
compatable with BSD sockets interface.

I doubt very much that windows will ever get a high resolution timer and

if it does it won't be used by winsock/select() because *sockets* don't
*need* high resolutions timers and select() on windows isn't good for 
anything else (unlike *nix).
