Libvirt uses gnulib to guarantee that poll() works on file descriptors;
all socket operations are magically mapped by gnulib to behave like file
descriptors, so that you don't have to worry about the (less-useful)
restrictions of windows poll() only working on sockets.

There is - it involves using gnulib.  But that is only for C and C++ - I
have no idea how this translates over to C#.
