Oh hell yes. We have spent a long time trying to make this happen.

The trouble is that it seems to be basically impossible to determine 
whether a socket is really open or not when you are not reading from it. 
And we don't read from sockets which have published when the memory 
alarm has gone off. I don't know if there is going to be a way around this.

Cheers, Simon
