The API is certainly no thing of beauty, as I already remarked here:

A description of the API can be found here:

The main problem is the ugliness of changing the meaning of pread()'s
'offset' argument to be a multiplexed [signal queue selector + queue

I do wonder if we can do better, though I have no particular solution
to offer beyond the sledgehammer of adding a new system call.
