We use asynchronous I/O from network, serial and keyboard devices. We do
this in a single thread because we do not believe that multiple thread
responsiveness is as good. This is via SIGIO.

We have not used the 'aio' named functions. Not due to lack of interest. I
think a more general description of the functions is needed.
