The last time I looked, it was a pretty thin wrapper, and
shouldn't cause a problem. I just looked at 2.3.5 sources. [I
think the timeout feature is new since I hacked on socketmodule.c
last.] I don't really see anything troublesome.
Basically, socket.recv() just calls recv() and socket.send()
just calls send().
