The second paragraph of section 8 explicitly refers to it as a structure.
And I think there are some more vague references later in that section.
Practically speaking though, for the major platforms that Erlang runs
on it's a 32-bit identifier - Linux & Solaris both use a signed int,
and the user-loadable extensions for Mac & Windows use an unsigned int
(although I'm not familiar with the Windows implementation to say if
it could actually return a value > 2^31 like the Mac NKE does).
I see from Björn's "What's cooking" email that you have already
implemented a solution. Thanks for taking care of it. I will endeavour
to get the new non-blocking connect committed before the start of next
