well, it's really not worth it, in my eyes, to optimise around a rotten
stinking pile of shit.

people should just get a refund, there is no way to make something
run efficiently smoothly and correctly on os x, it's just too broken
everywhere (all of kqueue, select and poll are horribly broken on os x,
forcing libev to fall back to select + hacks for example).

people running os x obviously are not interested in working and efficient
solutions. so why make it a priority?
