1. Can you keep this socket open as long as you want?
2. Is there a 'quit' command, or do you just close() the socket when done?
3. Before closing it, do you need to wait for all replies, or
   can you just close it even with unread replies? If there's
   a quit command, do you need to wait for a reply? What reply ?
