the fact that SocketPid shouldn't be used by developers, the rest, yes.

i'm sorry to read that it did hurt you so bad. i'll be interested to
read how many users of this code actually *use* it, and how many do
spend time in walking through the code. i do get your point, though,
and as i've said, it's a matter of tradeoffs.
