The problem is that the closest thing to a Unix file descriptor on
Windows is a HANDLE. But SOCKETs are not HANDLEs.

If all your application wants to do is receive data from sockets and
multiplex that then a windows SOCKET is fine.

But given you're writing a library which will be used by some arbitrary
application I don't see how you can assert that the only thing this
unknown application will be allowed to do in parallel in it's main loop
with qmf is other network operations.
