Yeah, I've seen the normal C copyover code that everyone has.  Maybe
I'm just a bit lost on the descriptor idea.  What descriptor numbers
are there I could get when people connect to my sockets, and how
would those numbers in the files be useful to me?  Is there a way to
connect to those sockets that are connected to a different process
if I run the mud again?
