Socket handling functions exist for the TinyScheme interpreter in
something called TinyScheme Extensions (tsx) which can be found at

functions related to sockets, file I/O, date and time, plus getenv and
system calls. Currently, the loading of TinyScheme extensions is
disabled by default.
If you want to get your hands dirty you could get tsx working with
Script-Fu but it would require compiling GIMP (or the Script-Fu
component) yourself. Run-time loadable extensions would need to be
enabled, tsx compiled to exclude building of its file I/O and date
routines (which are already included in Script-Fu), then building and
Admittedly, it is not something that average user would want to tackle.
I was planning on enabling the run-time loading of extensions by
TinyScheme. Perhaps, now is the time to do itn.
