_decref_socketios() comes from Python 3, where it was decided that sockets should not rely 
on reference counting (cf. ResourceWarning). IIRC this is also important for ssl sockets, 
which may create cycles.

I also saw the small inconsistency of eventlets which use raw _socket.socket instead of 
socket._socketobject.  IMO this is the one to fix, but I could not find the place.
