The configury stuff was pretty cool....

I don't think so. That _Jv_select() throws an InterruptedIOException
when the thread is interrupted is implementation-dependent (
Recall that getting the mainline to work was my prerequisite to
writing an interruptible implSelect() in
I plan on removing _Jv_select() completely in MinGW.

I think we do need this because the read, write and except parameters
to implSelect() are in/out parameters. I believe we need to clear
these before returning from implSelect() because
uses them on return to see which file descriptors are actually selected.
Since we are no longer suppressing the InterruptedIOException, the
return to after thread interruption is a normal return....

Let me know if you want me to commit this after I've made the other
changes you mentioned (like for alphabetical order) or whether
some of my above assumptions are incorrect.
