I have a proposal for LuaSocket ( could be 2.1 ;) ...).
If I am a developer of a new socket object class (i.e.X25, serial, etc.), I
want to have a standard hook ( callback or something...) to the select
function in order to implement my "waiting for... function" replacement.
At this moment, I can't figure out the way to do that, but I want to keep
the library as clean as be possible.
I think it can complement the "pluggable" style of the library.
