Hm, doesn't running good relays on Windows (especially high capacity
ones) require that we finish off the IOCP related work?  IIRC that's
what the bufferevent code was supposed to be for, but it hasn't been
maintained in a while, and is known to be buggy.

Getting time/funding to work on that if my recollection is correct
would be great I think.
