[Libwebsockets] Windows integration with external sockets

I want to build a prototype with libwebsockets under Windows that listen on 
2 external sockets. I looked the external loop sample but it's broken so I 
tried the libuv support. I get a compilation error saying that io_watcher is 
not a member of uv_poll_t. Should I rewrite the libuv.c to use the latest 
libuv or there is an older version of libuv that will be ok for 
libwebsockets under Windows?

I guess another option would be to rewrite lws-plat-win.c to add my two 
sockets file descriptors directly but that option would be acceptable only 
for the prototype. I'm open to all suggestions.
