the only significant addition is a TCP I/O, but now it's wonderfully easy to
write a server!
didn't need to touch the base helper library, and just a single-line add to
the Lua scheduler (to better handle error messages from a thread); so i think
it's feature complete enough for my original goals.

I've been working on designing a Syslog/Metalog replacement and this
fits the budget ;)
The main problem was that I wanted to use multiple threads so that log
processing didn't cause any backlog of msgs in in/output, and this is
exactly what I needed.
I plan on setting up a custom library to read the 2 linux logging
interfaces asynchronously, as well as a simple async SQLite library.
(Does anyone think having SQLite as async output format is important?
In previous experience, some file-system's FSYNC performance is
horrible, so I don't want that stalling things).
I think this oughtta get plenty of testing, since it'll be a
long-running process ;)

Just don't make the '9' format pack/unpack numbers... :-)
