If I understand correctly, you're trying to help the folks that want to
take this code and hack on it with jdk6 - is that right? Have you
considered creating a page on the SCTP project with the recipe. Seems
like removing the dependency on SocketOption and AlreadyBoundException
are trivial and maybe there isn't a need to add commented out code. As
the implementation is very tied to the selector implementation then I
assume it's not an issue to keep the dependency on NativeDispatcher.
That would avoid having to duplicate close/preClose at least. Otherwise
looks okay to me.
