? no polling involved; select() doing that, no the ticks are just to
provide for various zones not getting desynced. Ideally you don't
timetravel when you walk from Bogosville to Bogoton ;-)
(hmmm prob another thread to select off the eventd <--> SSC connections.
question, for that many connections, would UDP be a better idea than TCP?
one way or another, eventd will be monolithic, no concurrency, so then you
have 100+ sockets open... blech)
