Have you addressed the concerns of:
- Acquiring the number of named filters.
- Need 3 filter entry points for them to be truly useful.
that have been raised each time kqueue has been discussed?
Sadly, the easy one to implement (name-to-number) is the one that doens't
directly affect the kevent API itself -- the more complicated one, the
3-filter-entry-points, does. And since it does change things a bit, we
need to have that implemented before its brought into our tree.
