FYI, on a Win98SE box, asking WSAStartup() for version 1.1, and linked with
version 4.10.1998 of MS's wsock32.dll (nothing special there, it's just what
happened to be sitting on this vanilla but up-to-date box), the iMaxSockets
field got set to 32767.  Any FD_SETSIZE value thru that "makes sense".
Whether Win98 can actually deal with that many of anything is a question the
Winsock spec wisely refuses to address <wink>.
