As I understand it, sockets of various types are the major problem
currently? Unix domain sockets and select are not something I know much
about, so I have some background reading to do.

writeablep functions I'm also not familiar with.

Waldek, do I understand correctly that these socket connections are
used for the axiom terminal interface, the graphics, and the hyperdoc
system?  My (limited) understanding of how Maxima handled communication
with interfaces like xmaxima was that it used tcp sockets, sort of a
pseudo-webserver/web-browser type connection.  (Many use more primative
means, unfortunately...)  Can you recommend a good introduction into
the various types of sockets/select?
