	 If you don't mind getting your hands a (little) bit dirty, here's a sto=
	 that will work ghc-5.02.1:

	 * edit SocketPrim.hi (and SocketPrim.p_hi), to instead of saying =

			"Socket" in its __export section it says "Socket{MkSocket}"

			(you'll find the .hi file in imports/net/ inside your 5.02.1 tree).

	 * compile up the attached NetExtra.hs as follows:

				foo$ ghc -c NetExtra.hs -fvia-C -fglasgow-exts -package net

	 * import and include NetExtra with your socket code, e.g.,
