Can these be used by a server process that wants to simultaneous 
keep sockets open to multiple clients?

The reason that I ask this is because, unlike with command/response
client/server systems, the server must be able to send data to any
client at any moment.  AIM/ICQ would be similar model, even though
I am not writing a chat program.
