I like the ns_tcp and ns_udp ideas.
I have the idea that since most protocols are about the same that I should be
able to do about anything from aolserver/tcl

Here's my test so you can look it over.

proc handle_socklistencallback {rfd wfd} {
        set headers {}
puts $wfd {welcome}
flush $wfd
gets $rfd cmdline
    close $rfd
    close $wfd

ns_socklistencallback * 8443 handle_socklistencallback

"telnet machinename 8443" from 2 different machines.
The first one gets "welcome"
The second one accepts the connection but doesn't get "wecome" until the first
connection ends.
