I'd like to disable the automatic fallback at runtime, and maybe
only allow this for configure.developer (or the waf equivalent).

The reason is once we go over the 1024 fd_set limit of open fds,
we'll start silently failing if we've fallen back and I'd hate
to have to debug that in a production situation :-).

For developer tests I think it's fine.
