- Win32: when using the threaded RTS, bypass the Async IO stuff and just make blocking calls to read()/write(). This gives a significant performance boost to programs doing lots of multithreaded I/O: in fact, a test program I have which does I/O over 500 pipes simultaneously goes twice as fast with this change, and is even faster than the non-threaded RTS (Windows only - Unix changes are in the pipeline too). - openFd: take an extra parameter to specify socketness of the file descriptor rather than assuming that all streams are sockets. Some streams (eg. pipes) aren't sockets.
