OK it's done for now, in svn. Each time something is sent, you get a "sent" 
message from the status outlet that gives the number of bytes that were 
actually sent and the client number. Also a [client( message with no data 
lists the connections using a "client" selector.
The send function doesn't wait any more. If the number of bytes sent is 
zero, you have to try again.
It all needs to be tested...

You're welcome. I too prefer functional objects;)
