Sure, but it's _ugly_.

Why not just change:

  return 0;


  return bytes_written;

You won't even have to change any other code.

You have to stick the stuff in the player's queue, place the person in a
special CON_ state, and wait for the data.  You can't just read from the
socket because it's non-blocking and may not arrive for a long time.  Then
when you're back into nanny() for the new CON_ state, you do more
processing, send stuff, and place them in another CON_ state.  Repeat until
you're done and they are placed back in CON_PLAYING.
