Hello,

Regarding the discussion on gen_tcp:send that could block forever in 
some case: 
http://www.erlang.org/ml-archive/erlang-questions/200402/msg00259.html

I found some TCP/IP options that seems to address the problem on 
Solaris: tcp_ip_abort_interval.

On other implementations, this feature is said to be not tunable but 
might exist.
Do you know if this abort feature for TCP/IP retransmission exist in 
other OS (Linux, Windows, BSD) ?
Could the abort be handled by gen_tcp:send in Erlang ?
