I don't know if there are any other applications, but it seems strange
to have in the default configuration lowat == hiwat. Is the soreadable
and sowritable macro doing the right thing in that case?

It could also be a POSIX violation, because we are using sockets
internally to implement pipes, there is expected behavior for pipes
and operations < PIPE_BUF.
