Ned Deily <nad at acm.org> added the comment:

The notes in the documentation under socket.gettimeout() do go into more detail than elsewhere.  But at least one thing there is at best misleading: "Sockets are always created in blocking mode" is, as we've seen, not correct for BSD-ish systems for sockets returned by accept().  So, at a minimum, this section and the documentation for socket.accept() should be expanded, along with any other changes.
