For some reason I have it in my head that fd_set was limited to 32
but looking at the Linux source its clearly 1024, which is the sme
as my _SC_OPEN_MAX.   The manpage says its FD_SETSIZE, but doesn't
clarify whether FD_SETSIZE is guarenteed to be large enough to store
any FD upto _SC_OPEN_MAX.  

Jim, any thoughts on this ?  I'll happily switch to fd_set if we expect
it'll be suitable
