In general, I like your library design very much. It seems well thought out
and clean. I'm especially glad about the "select", since neither socket++
nor Commoncpp implemented this (well, Commoncpp has some strange mechanism)
well or at all.

Perhaps my only question is whether there should be a rdsocket method in
the socket buffer. I suppose this is just a preference, but I feel that
it should be well hidden away, in the same way that C file descriptors
are, in that fstreams may be initialized with them, but you can't get
them back.

Well, I'm still speaking for the previous version, so you might have
changed it already.

Anyhow, thanks for the work - it's really going to help me soon for a
distributed computing app!

Consumerism = bad. Why? Comsumers are meant *only* to consume.
What can I do!?
Go the Open Source way:
1. General info
2. Music, Movies, and other media
3. Software
