I notice SUSv2 says that <sys/socket.h> is a standalone include, whereas
we require <sys/types.h> to be included first. Since <sys/socket.h>
required "fancy" types like uid_t, gid_t, size_t and caddr_t (just
to name a few) I don't think there's anyway of avoiding including
<sys/types.h> to make this a standalone header. A quick browse of some
DU, Solaris and Linux <sys/socket.h>'s shows this is what they do to.
Any objections to me making this change (and updating the applicable
manual pages)? I'll give it a week or so before I do this...
