Heh, of course the socket server also only ends with ctl-C.  And I misread the CAN example, it won't spin because the read isn't wrapped in a try/except.  So yes, that should use a with on the socket as well, since the with will close the socket on a ctl-C, unlike a close statement after the loop which will never be reached.
