I think it should be more stable now. I've just today put up 0.17, which
fixes a flakey unit test, so with any luck it should be nice and
reliable even on Windows now.

It seems to be being tested quite well, and successfully (at 0.16

Perhaps if 0.17 appears to fix the flakey select() tests, we can deem it
suitable for core now?
