I just pushed a new version of network-conduit[1] that adds a
light-weight TCP server/client interface. It's very similar to how
Warp it structured (which is the underlying engine for mighttpd2). I
put together a simple example of a server[2] that simply echos back
whatever you send it, and a client[3] that sends a Fibonacci every
second. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.
