I don't think it is possible, because the server socket is lost.

I think it is time to start going through the socket interface, maybe
define a new sock package, with all the latest requirement. From my
experience, I would say that:

1) modify (socket-accept-connection sock)
   it should return a new socket, connected to the client.

2) had new functions
   (socket-ready? s) (socket-in-ready? s) (socket-out-ready? s)
   that return #t if data is available on the socket

What are you feelings about it ?
