Portability and synchronization.  You'll have to make sure that you
guarantee mutual exclusion for the various queues that are processed by
gpilotd.  If you want to do this though, go ahead.  Just write some nice
access functions for the elements that have to be accessed with locks :).
I prefer the single select method though, unless servicing the CORBA
requests takes a long time, in which case threading is the only way to go.
