     The following are my initial stab at the concepts that need to be
     handled in a sockets library.
     Local or remote
     Protocol family
     etc ...
     Address Family
     NSAP family
     Active or Passive
     Blocking or Non-Blocking
     Unicast or Multicast or Broadcast
     Connected or Connectionless
     Datagram or Stream
     Reliable or Un-reliable
     Ordered or UnOrdered
     support for out-of-band data or not.
     I will try to arrange these into a feature map.
