[Openmcl-devel] I made simple swank helper.

Note that swank-helper uses the "select" system call which tries to wait 
some members of some sets of Unix file descriptors are ready to do some 
kinds of I/O
Some Windows C libraries may try to emulate some parts of what select 
tries to
do, but IIRC CCL on Windows mostly tries to do I/O without involving any 
C libraries.
The closest Windows analogue to select() might be 
WaitForMultipleObjects, and I don't
believe that you can generally wait for Windows file handles unless you 
know a lot
about what I/O operations are awaiting completion on that handle.

More generally, if swank-helper doesn't work on Windows, that is not 
I don't know whether or not it could be made to work on Windows, or what 
be involved in that.
