evGetNext currently implements descriptor magnitude fairness, in that it
will remember what descriptor it left off at in the previous fd_mask scan,
and start there again next time. are you asking for a global option to
turn this off and always call select() (never reusing masks between calls
to evGetNext) and always start from zero?
