Rickard,

I see no basis for your statement below.

Could this be old information that's no longer valid?

I just looked at the documentation for kqueue and poll and saw no restrictions on the type of file descriptor being handled. 

Poll has no restrictions whatsoever and kqueue has slightly different notification behavior depending on descriptor type.

	Thanks, Joel
