The lowlevel herachy is absolete and maps to the C api the only package 
that needs updating is Connections and I am using Unchecked_Unions and 
Streams to interference the underlaying TCP-Stream.
So the current state is:
* All specs are i a fairly good shape.
* Spread.Low_level shall be deleted since it is the old binding 
generated from the *.h -files.
* Spread.Connections is the package thats needs to be completed.
* A bunch of packages are "leftovers after experiments" so they should 
be deleted.
