No problem, a week or so, it is turning into a very busy work week for me.

I can see the point in an embedded situation, I not even sure that that the
full socket api is available on those types of platforms (select, ioctl etc)
so dont limit yourself to a common denominator.

I think it would be good/wise to keep the underlying transport mechanism as
pluggable as possible. I think xmlBlaster is 'great' but the strongest
reason I considered xmlblaster is on the client side I already had an
established application and it is all on the strength of CORBA idl that I am
able to work with xmlBlaster seamlessly without adding additional untrusted
comms code. I think the same may stand for a socket based apps, what do you
