Hi Tobias,
yes I remember this message, thanks for the links.
My intention was to open a branch for fixing the issue and ask
permission before merging.

I'm pretty sure that the right thing would be to let the CI tell
whether we broke the MSVC/LLVM windows build or not.
That would be more efficient than requesting review from single person
for every single change.
Maybe someone can help Eliot setting this up.

Constantly red builds cannot sustainably scale anyway.
It would be great to integrate epoll fixes from David before they rot
for example.
