it's possible to do it, but only under linux at the moment. You just set an iptables prerouting rule that drops incoming tcp RST packets. This a kernel side level 4 setting that's perfectly transparent to the application level, the only side effect being that any incoming connection will end with a timeout in place of a graceful reset. Under windows I suppose you simply lack the instruments and support to do something clever like that.
