[gambit-list] UDP

Hey Jeff,

I really like what I saw when I browsed Gamsock's code. The code looks
clean and well implemented.

The two things I see missing, correct me if I'm wrong are:

#1 Cross-platform support, mainly Windows
#2 Some way to block on reading the UDP port that is integrated with the
Gambit scheduler

Regarding #1, it seems a bit wasteful to have to implement cross-platform
sockets as it is already done in Gambit's low-level C code, so maybe some
collaboration with Marc into exposing this code in some way

Regarding #2, my understanding is that Marc added raw-device ports a while
ago to help vyzo do exactly that in Gerbil
