No "problems" yet, just looking at what I need to get started.. I
noticed that it includes other libraries like openssl.h and krb5.h, do
any of those make their own calls to the posix network api? Also, is
it supposed to also work with filesystem sockets too?

I've been looking at the code and I see there's calls to send, recv,
socket, etc directly, so I guess I'll have to isolate them myself.. It
seems to include pthreads too, but it looks like it should be easy to

Thanks for the reply..
