You should.

working around this in libev would either force me to expose this internal interface
or major uglyness.

I'd resort to "patching", although you should try some elss invasive methods,

   $ cat myev.c

   #define backend_poll(loop, waittime) ...
   #include "ev.c"

and see how far you get. this happens to only match the backend_poll call,
and while that might change, and you havr to look at internals (such as
how toc all backend_poll), at least you wouldn't have to patcht he file on
every release.
