Thanks a lot, G! One step closer to shedding the blackbox skin.

Questions re your patch:
a) Why the added unistd.h include? What function is it for?

b) Why the constructor order of (callback, timeout, callbackdata)? I
think (timeout, callback, callbackdata) makes more sense.

Fabulous work :)

I am damn unsatisfied to be killed in this way.
