Just to put my own 2c in the discussion, a lot of the changes are
non-controvercial and they fix bugs (such as incorrect argument passing
of int where it should have been socklen_t, etc.). Could at least those
get merged so that the amount of diff is reduced? Who is going to do it?
Can we help by producing a diff of what we think are non-controvercial?
