libev supported this officially from the very beginning, in many ways
(each event loop is different of course, and support is required by both
embedding and embedded loop) - the fatc that there are both solutions to
embed glib in libev and vice versa shows this.

it does need to be implemented cleanly however - exposing some unrelated
internal values is not going to work reliably.
