Good point. It looks like File Descriptor Resource that deals with OS
handles should, in principle, be able to deal with socket handles as well.
However, socket handles are not available in current implementation, as far
as I can see reading fdstream.cpp.

There is a comment that non-blocking mode is curently not supported and you
would imagine it would be even more important issue with socket handles.
