you are correct. i can live with a c like behaviour for recv/2.

but i still think it is ok to have a recv/1 that gives me all available 
bytes and a recv/2 that gives me the right amount or an error. the 
latter to be used when only the right amount is of interest (ie, too few 
bytes will not be of any use, so i do not need to see them). imho.
