Received a message from Steve McKinty of the X.25 development group
saying that the socket interface to Sunlink X.25 _would_ be supported
in the future but that the streams api is recommended for new apps for
reasons of efficiency, ease of use and access to future enhancements.

So rest easy those with lots invested in the socket interface to X.25. I
_thought_ I was quoting the manual accurately.!
