Interesting...thanks for pointing this out...Windows has its own  
proprietary API for this sort of thing.
I built a java solution around this 6 years ago.  We were able to  
handle 50,000 active sockets on a single cpu 800 Mhz Windows 2000  
Server (only 2GB RAM) with no degradation which beat the pants off  
the top end $250,000 Sun solution that could only handle 5,000  
The value of optimizing socket events should not to be underestimated.
