I'm not sure what you need, but you might create a thread that uses
`object-wait-multiple' to block until data is ready:

    (lambda ()
      (object-wait-multiple #f tcp-in-port)
      ... notify some other thread ...))

The notification part might use `break-thread' if you really want an
asychronous exception.
