The socket class has a method (setSotimeout) to set a timeout
on a read from a socket. However I (and I'm sure others) also
need to set a timeout on a write from a socket.
Let me explain:
If you need to communicate to a machine across a wide area
network with routers etc. it is possible (or even likely) that
a write on a socket will suspend because of network congestion.
The TCP/IP timeout period is far too long and I need to return
an error relatively quickly (5 - 10 seconds).
I therefore request that the method setSotimeout be extended to
include a write on a socket.
