I'm interested in this topic as well and have recently starting  
timeout support into Johan's event library:


I think the overall goal should be to get rid of http://github.com/gregorycollins/event/blob/master/src/System/Event/EPoll.hsc, as it's in the core. Any non-blocking call to select should be save to replace by epoll, as the semantics are the same. As epoll is considerably more fine grained than non-blocking select, the architecture must support a run loop which effectively retrieves events faster than non-blocking select would do. Otherwise the effort would be futile.
Maybe we should form a working group?
