Yeah, I saw those. I'm personally unfamiliar with the even the 5.0
package system so it's not clear to me what's really required. I'll
check out the socket lib and see if an example of it in action clears
it up though.

Ok, we'll see. I just read (somewhere?) that 5.1 should be out by the
end of the year so it won't be too long at all. It'll probably take a
couple weeks to let wxLua settle down from some of the changes I've
been making and so when 5.1 comes out we can switch everything over.
If we're ready before that then we can try to tackle it using the
Kepler code.
