Okay I think I get what you are saying. If you are doing a receive(), having multiple senders is okay. And if you are doing a send(), having multiple receivers are okay. However if you are doing a receive, and there is another receiver beats you to the punch, that is a problem. With a little change to the select() interface, this could be detected and an exception could be raised.
