    PHP has been since its inception strongly influenced by C.
    And as a tool originally conceived on Unix, it should
    maintain its roots and continue to provide people familiar
    with Unix APIs a convenient way for scripting.

    Thus, improved Windows support should not come at the expense
    of Unix support without a perfect reason.  I'm missing that
    reason here.

    I haven't looked deeply at what API changes have been
    introduced lately, but I'd suggest to use the standard BSD
    sockets return value semantics (-1 for failure, >= 0 for
    success).  Those semantics also prevail in the Winsock
    implementation, so they should be quite natural.
