SCTP accept?

...prim_inet doesn't even appear to have accept support for anything
but TCP. Does this mean the Erlang SCTP implementation is worthless
for any real use?

I'm beginning to wonder if the "UDP-like" nature of SCTP has been
misunderstood in the actual Erlang implementation. SCTP, like TCP, is
connection-oriented and therefore you do need the accept step to allow
multiple clients. Other api implementations eg python/java that I
checked over do require this step, so it seems to me that perhaps the
offering in Erlang isn't complete??
