Wrap asyncore calls and be careful about exceptions.

=== StandaloneZODB/ZEO/asyncwrap.py 1.1 => 1.2 ===
+The poll() and loop() calls exported by asyncore can raise exceptions.
+asyncore uses either the select() or poll() system call.  It is
+possible for those system calls to fail, returning, for example,
+EINTR.  Python raises a select.error when an error occurs.  If the
+program using asyncore doesn't catch the exception, it will die with
+an uncaught exception.
+This module exports safer versions of loop() and poll() that wrap the
+asyncore calls in try/except handlers that catch the errors and do the
+right thing.  In most cases, it is safe to catch the error and simply
+retry the call.
+XXX Operations on asyncore sockets can also fail with exceptions that
+can safely be caught and ignored by user programs.  It's not clear if
+it would be useful to extend this module with wrappers for those
+# XXX The current implementation requires Python 2.0.  Not sure if
+# that's acceptable, depends on how many users want to combine ZEO 1.0
+# and Zope 2.3.
