The code we saw last week was sleek and pretty. This week, in making it more useful, it appears to have grown all sorts of hair. It will be interesting to see how well it can be cleaned back up.
Is splice only intended for pipes? I hope that eventually I could splice, say, a file to a socket (a la sendfile), socket to a socket, etc.
