Hi Jonathan.. Cool stuff! What about..


    connect sockets:
	socket has connected or failed to connect (same a select(2)'ing
	on a non-blocking socket after a connect(2)).


    Child process event. ident is the child PID. Returns same status
    as wait(4), etc.


    Signal received event. ident is the signal number. Overrides
    any signal handler for same (? wouldn't work for SEGV, etc :-)
