Thanks to everyone for ideas on how to "select" Pervasives.in_channel.
Since there seems to be no better solution than

  (1) hacking the low-level structure by using external C, or

  (2) reinventing the high-level library on top of Unix I/O,

I'm thinking of submitting a feature wish at  It should be easy enough for
the developers to implement, I hope...  (I could contribute my own
implementation if necessary, but I'm sure they will do better work.)
