Copying to the mailing list.

Thanks for pointing out StateVar.  However, setSocketOption and
getSocketOption (or variants taking raw Fds or GHC FDs) will not have
a class for socket options to abstract over.  It'd be nicer to see a
list of settable options under the SetSockOpt class, and a list of
gettable options under the GetSockOpt class.
