I don't think it can be done, as windows doesn't have any kind of unified I/O
model as POSIX has.

Your best bet is to use an extra thread (the first thing that should come
to your mind on windows is: if it isn't obvious how to do it, it probably
needs to be done in a separate thread) and use e.g. an ev_async watcher to
wake up the event loop on events.
