- pass in the write fd set as except fd set under windows. windows
is so uncontrollably lame that it requires this.

There is no supported compilation method available on windows except
embedding it into other applications.
Not a libev limitation but worth mentioning: windows apparently doesn't
accept large writes: instead of resulting in a partial write, windows will
either accept everything or return C<ENOBUFS> if the buffer is too large,
so make sure you only write small amounts into your sockets (less than a
megabyte seems safe, but thsi apparently depends on the amount of memory
Due to the many, low, and arbitrary limits on the win32 platform and
the abysmal performance of winsockets, using a large number of sockets
is not recommended (and not reasonable). If your program needs to use
