I think this is probably a good idea quite aside from async issues. For 
one thing, it would make testing with a mock-socket class easier. Issues 
to decide: name of parameter (should be same for all socket using 
classes); keyword only? (ditto).

I am not sure this needs a PEP. Most parameter additions are just 
tracker issues. But I would be worthwhile to decide on the details here
