your interpretation is probably not wrong, but i just want you to
understand what it is that i'm trying to accomplish.  :)

and it is my (possible incorrect) understanding that the iso handling
of sockets is different enough to support this as a feature of general
use.  "eager listeners" is not "normal" tcp/ip.  i'm sort of mucking
with the tcp fsm in order to accomplish my evil goals...  :]
