Yes, this is what I want to do when I have kill().

It will be a primitive. Still thinking (and no I'm not
the boss, but open to suggestions). What I'm after is
a single object which represents a number of channels,
and I can wait on this one object. It would itself look
like a channel. I'm blocking on it. I can only read on it.
When it has data for me, I can read it. The data is the
channel which responded first.
Hmm - still doesn't solve broadcasts. ? ! Oh, it can :-)

later next week, I need to finish stuff here - chris
