IOW, Sun crippled their API because Win32 doesn't handle interruptable
I/O portably.  Not a good policy.

Since Java doesn't support read() with timeouts either, it is easy to
create a "stuck" thread that can never die.

Question: do the libgcj maintainers feel obligated to follow Sun's
interpretation of the JLS?
