Netreceive and TCP/Windows

There is a "TCP_NODELAY" call on WinXX which should at least improve
performance for NT->Linux and NT->NT.

TCP_NODELAY exists for Linux too, but I'm not sure if this improves 
the situation.

I have changed a few things in the net code, to make it more secure
on Linux (no hassle with reserved ports if the application stops
without disconnect and the like)

I will sort these things out for 0.31 and will sent patches to miller,
which are in a managable, understandable form in the near future.

Meanwhile if someone wants to try my current x_net.c .. it is

No guaranties for anything, though.


 more things to come
