sorry that i'm delayed about documentation (specificaly socket module).
i have no TeX environment now (i had before) and having trouble
checking if i'm typesetting right. do you mind if i send you just

as for Lib/*.y changes, there shouldn't be much changes unless you have
faulty IPv6 connectivity - the code will try to connect to IPv6
destination then IPv4 against FQDN hostnames, so if IPv6 connectivity
is faulty you will see more delays.
with Lib/ftp.py people is most likely to see something is happening
as it will try protocol-independent FTP commands (EPSV/EPRT) first.
anyway... if possible drop me notes. i don't check SF too frequently
(i cannot adapt to the SF UI). i'll subscribe to python-dev.
