My example used a bare-bones windows and linux socket-wrapping library by Jasen
Plietz. I wrote to hime to see if I could use it, but never heard from him.
Looking in the sandbox and files sections instead, there were so many socket
libraries that I was a bit overwhelmed. I didn't want to use Hugo Duncan's work,
since his library appears quite large.

I'm trying to avoid using the low-level windows and posix socket functions,
since that is not my expertise.
