+As of this writing, POE does not work on Windows platforms. This has
+been traced to differences between Windows' and the rest of the
+world's ioctl and select calls.
POE is suspected to work on MacOS. If someone could confirm or deny
this, it would be greatly appreciated.
+CPAN.pm will ensure that you have up-to-date copies of all the modules
+POE uses, even if you don't need them.

Non-requirements:
POE is compatible with fork(), but it doesn't require it.
