Sorry for replying to myself, but sometimes curiosity just gets the
better of me...

After some googling it seems that Winsock SOCKETs are really not
equivalent in the way you want to Unix file descriptors and can't in
themselves be used in the same sort of places. But you can create a
windows HANDLE from a SOCKET by using WSAEventSelect() but you need to
know what event (read/write/etc.) you want the HANDLE triggered for.

In any event the simple #ifdef scheme above is not very useful in the
real world.
