1) write() and syswrite() will now accept a single-argument
form of the call, for consistency with Perl's syswrite().
2) You can create a TCP-based IO::Socket::INET without forcing
a connect attempt.  This allows you to configure its options
(like making it non-blocking) and then call connect() manually.

from ever returning the correct value.
