Adding socket support would certainly open the door for many common
classes applications.  If I had my pick, I say, sockets and then re.

BTW, I gatta say projects like shedskin and pypy are the most exciting
python projects I'm aware of.  Please keep of the good work.  I'm so
excited about the day I can begin using shedskin for the types of
projects I use python on.
