I have never used keepalive, but from what I read in the Stevens book,
it sounds as though I can use it in my client without the server needing
to use it too. After enough idle time my TCP stack will send "a TCP
segment to which the [server] must respond" with an ACK or RST.
It would also be nice for the server to use keepalive so it can detect
if a client crashes or loses connectivity, which is after all much more
likely, but I think I can unilaterally use keepalive in my client. Is
anyone planning to add it to the server? Seems like it would only take a
few lines of code for Someone Versed In The Art of BSD sockets...
