[erlang-questions] How to solve the blocking accept call in a tcp_listener process ?

* Start the process using 'proc_lib' so it can be added to a supervisor
* Run accept with a short timeout so you can poll your mailbox for
messages to cancel
* Use gen_server:enter_loop (or other similar) to become a gen
behavior once the socket is connected.
