[gambit-list] Concurrency, ports, and blocking

I'm really enjoying Gambit 4.0 so far, but there are a few functions
that I'm missing:

I can't find a way to block on a set of items (ports, mutexes,
whatever) until one becomes available.  Does Gambit have an equivalent
to Concurrent ML's select (or PLT Scheme's object-wait-multiple)?

Along similar lines, is there an equivalent to char-ready? for
non-character ports?
