I think there is an interesting disconnect between the low-level hackers and the higher level network/application level hackers here. A lot of the interesting projects that I know of (not to mention the ones that I lead myself: Mnet), use select()/poll() interfaces exactly as I've described above -- as nothing more than a way to get at the callbacks which they then immediately de-multiplex back into callbacks. The projects I'm thinking of here are things like Twisted, and E (although the current E implementation doesn't use kernel calls, as it is in Java...).
