Yeah in this case the custom loop is a library like libev, where you don’t actually poll() manually. So I had to “translate” from that example.

But it allows lws to 1) track interfaces, source addresses and gateways to perform dns result sorting, and 2) allows lws to respond to existing connections becoming unroutable immediately by closing them.  Eventually this info will be used for additional desirable features.

Thanks for the background!

I think this gets me to “minimum viable”. I’ll see about cleaning this up and hopefully publish it soon.
