net_Select() was ill-defined, as it was impossible to know which socket the 
data was received from, and what the sender socket address was for 
unconnected sockets. It was also misbehaving in error cases.

As it was only ever used by the SAP plugin which has now been converted to a 
proper poll() loop, it's been withdrawn.
