LuaSocket 1.2, soon to be released (less then a week) allows a
timeout to be specified for the accept method of server sockets.
The function returns nil and "timeout" in case noone shows up
before a timeout condition.
It also provides UDP support, faster (way way faster) line mode
I/O and a few other goodies.
Does anyone have any other suggestion (wish)? Maybe I can add it
before I close the release, or maybe some other time?
