Cool generic scripts...

Some of the commands in libURL are asychronous. So it is possible to issue a
command and then continue woriking in RR. In these cases, killsockets would
help if one was to quit before a command was finishing executing. Course,
I'm not sure RR/MC doesn't automatically kill sockets when quitting (??)

I have built some of my own socket protocols for file transfer and seem to
remember having some problem with a 'residual' effect after quitting a
program with sockets open...that's why I use the killsockets on close stack
script. It can't hurt.
