Description

select.poll()--used in utility.py--is not supported on the OS X, see following. <http://bugs.python.org/issue5154> One reference I found suggests to use select.kevent() instead. <https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/issues/9531>

Add data poller loop for kqueue. This adds an alternate poller loop for systems that use kqueue rather than poll. Limited testing seems to work fine on FreeBSD, so it should work similarly on OSX.

I'm marking this one fixed, unless someone with an OSX machine tests it and finds it not working.
