So, you want to do this?  I suggest adding one "old-style" primitive in 
addition (which, along with several older prims, might be culled at 
some later deadline if backward compatibility goes out the window).

As above, plus:


which does primConnect: with an explicit bind() on the socket first.  
(The reasoning being that it's one method in the image to make it 
available, keeping everything consistent and compatible with "the old 
way".  From there, given the lower-level prims, you could swap out the 
guts of Socket to follow a strict BSD model any time you felt like 
hacking on the image a little.  Then if you decide give up on older 
images, throw the old prims away...)
