It would be nice if, for whoever is doing this, you could include some
kind of switch to indicate how the socket is being used. Most people
retrieve large files and images over sockets, but in my robotics work
I use them for sending and receiving very small commands, on the order
of 10-20 bytes typically.
From the comment in #upTo:
"Another measure is that this implementation is greedy and will load
data into the buffer until there is nothing more available, or it has
loaded 100kb - and not until then we search the buffer."
I need an implementation of #upTo: that is much more direct - I ended
up writing my own for now, that uses a much smaller constant.
