The things called "objects" in Win32 are called "file descriptors" in POSIX, but don't let yourself be misled, they don't necessarily have anything to do with "files", only "most of the time".
So select() was *already* WaitForMultipleObjects(), it's just that we are missing the APIs to map some things to "objects", so we can't wait on them. Like futexes, for example.
